Re: Does Fuel Stabilizer Prevent Ethanol Damage? Let's find out!
I'm with Walt on this one. In regular use are: Tractor for mowing and snow plowing. Trim mowers, old Craftsman Shredder, Cyclone Rake, and my Yamaha powered generator. All use the 87 octane 10% ethanol pump fuel. No special treatments except on the generator, I cut the fuel valve off and let the carb run dry.
I have five, 5 gallon polyethylene gas cans (25 gallons total) that I use up completely before making another gas station run. They are stored in an unheated garage. In my case that is probably 3 or 4 refills per year so I guess the gas stays somewhat fresh.
