stabilizer

Postby jeffers » Mon Nov 24, 2014 12:24 pm



Hey folks!...Could someone please tell me how much fuel stabilizer to put in the gas tank of 86 aspy? I haven't went and bought it yet cause I'm not sure what size container to get. I have never done this before and don't want to put too much or too little. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jeff

Most stabilizers (I know it's true for Sta-Bil, others are similar) you can't do damage or cause problems overdosing the fuel. I'm sure at some point the engine wouldn't run very well on mostly stabilizer, but even the instructions say to use x amount for so many months, or twice that for longer. I generally put 2-3 times the amount it says to use. I also use marine Sta-Bil, as it's better at keeping water in suspension and preventing phase separation.
