Is this good for gas or is there something better out there?

if you need to get the carb cleaned I use Sea foam https://seafoamworks.com/

if I need to stabalize the gas for storage and keep it from going bad Starton http://www.starbrite.com/item/star-tron-gasoline-additive

both can be purchased at fleet farm or farm and fleet

I use Marine Grade Sta-Bil in the gas for all my small engines since my chainsaw shop recommended it years ago. No carb issues since then.


Eh...wot?

For my chain saws I use that pre-mix that comes in a quart can. The saws run great and you never have to worry about them starting if you put them away for a while. Only downside is it costs more to use them.
I use regular Sta-bil and run it through my boat motors before putting them away. They seem to start just fine in spring.
Isn't the marine grade Sta-bil to stabilize gas with ethanol in it?

I run my Chevelles gas tanks low in the fall, and add Sta- bil. Always fire up in the spring.

we had a good discussion about seafoam and startron a few weeks ago in two different threads lots of shared experiences with leaving small engines gas in and coming back and them firing right up.

Yes, regular Sta-Bil is for keeping fuel fresh for up to two years. It also claims to clean carbs and remove water from gas. Sta-Bil 360 Marine does all that and is designed to stabilize fuel with ethanol in it They claim it also limits corrosion within your fuel tank and system. They claim it keeps fuel fresh for up to one year.

I put it in the small engines, camper generator, and classic car for winter storage.

Just go by what they say to mix it to, to much can be hard on gaskets in carberators.


Let me sugar coat this

K 100 has a stabilizer for gas, They claim it keeps gas good for a few years. I've been using it my stand by generator & have had no problems with starting after long periods of time. Only thing it is a little more than sta bil.

Still need to prevent separation if you leave it sit for long periods of time.

I never had an issue before the watering down scam
