View Full Version : Stabil for Winterization

What kind of stabil is everyone using this year? I live in florida and we have the gas with <10 ethanol. I purchased the new blue stabil that says it is for ethanol gas. Should I use this or the old red stabil?

I used the Marine version. I figure it couldn't hurt

I am not sure it would make a difference. And because our winter is so short you aren't going to run a big risk by using any of them.

If you know you are getting some ethanol, stay with the marine/ethanol version..
and hunt for a holdout station that does not use ethanol!

Unfortunately in my area i have not seen any stations that sale without ethanol anymore. I live in jacksonville florida and seems all stations bp, gate, hess and many others are doing the <10. The only place i can get gas without ethanol is by our lake house but that is 1 1/2 hours away. right now o probably have a mixture of the ethanol and the regular. Will it hurt to put the blue stabil in there with the gas being mixed?

Sure you'll be fine. One of my riding partners started putting the blue Stabil in last month and we don't have E10 at the lake. I think it has some other benefits too.. plus it is more concentrated than regular Stabil.
You'll be quite fine with using that in a tank of mixed reg/eth gas.
