Re: End of the year fuel stabilizer
Twice now in 2 years I have had ethanol fuel go bad and refuse to start until I drained out the stuff and refilled. The fuel did not smell like any gas I know of. Both times in a motorcycle, once in a BMW and this last time in my wife's Spyder. In each case the fuel was under 6 weeks old, and was the higher octane fuels. I always use Stabil, Startron etc in my small engines and ATV's and just treat the motorcycles for the winter, but may just treat the motorcycles every time as sometimes it can be a few weeks between rides.
Bottom line is this ethanol fuel is lousy and it does not cost much to treat the fuel in my small engine powered equipment including the motorcycles.
