For maximum convenience and cost-effectiveness, equipment and vehicles used seasonally, such as motorcycles, snowmobiles, personal watercraft, snowblowers, outboard motors and classic cars, need to start easily and run properly when removed from storage. Gasoline, however, is not formulated for long-term storage and can start to degrade in as little as 30 days. Degraded fuel leads to varnish and sludge that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors; stick floats; and cause poor engine performance, starting problems, increased maintenance expenses and decreased equipment life.
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer (AST) inhibits the oxidation process that occurs when fuel is stored for extended periods, improving performance, extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance expenses.
Treating fuel with AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer prior to storing equipment provides confidence. It offers peace of mind that equipment will not only start when it is needed, but will also perform properly.
Eliminates Need to Drain Fuel
Draining fuel from equipment can not only be difficult, it invites corrosion on the bare metal in the tank and drying and cracking of gaskets and seals. Some fuels are pre-treated with oxidation inhibitors that allow them to be stored for short periods without forming excessive deposits, while other fuels have no inhibitors at all. AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer eliminates the need to drain fuel from equipment before long-term storage. It fights fuel deterioration, severely limiting the formation of damaging varnish and deposits to help extend equipment life.
Deposits, varnish and sludge that form from degraded fuel can cause important components in the fuel system to become clogged or stuck and require thorough cleaning or replacement. AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer helps reduce maintenance time and costs by preventing harmful deposits from forming in the tank and fuel system, eliminating the need to clean or replace carburetors after long-term storage.
- Helps keep fuel from deteriorating
- Protects against varnish and gum buildup
- Fights ethanol corrosion
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer is engineered for use in, but not limited to, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, UTVs, outboard motors, stern-drive and inboard marine engines, personal watercraft, lawn equipment, chainsaws, snowblowers, portable generators, handheld power equipment, motor scooters, powered farm equipment, powered construction equipment, cars and trucks.
One ounce of AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer treats 2.5 gallons of fuel, including fuel that contains up to 10 percent ethanol.
Before storing equipment, treat it with the appropriate dose of AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer. Let the engine run for five to 10 minutes to thoroughly circulate the additive through the fuel system. Stop the engine and store the equipment in a dry, covered location.
