Gasoline is not
formulated for long-term storage and can start to
degrade in as little as 60 days, leading to varnish and
sludge deposits that clog injectors, fuel lines and
carburetors, stick floats and cause poor engine
performance, starting problems, increased maintenance
expenses and decreased equipment life.
It is difficult to
drain all of the fuel from equipment before storage, and
doing so would expose the system to other problems,
including the formation of rust and corrosion on the
bare metal in the tank and fuel system and the 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.
Stabilizer (AST) reduces the oxidation occurs when fuel
is stored for extended periods, improving performance,
extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer applications include, but are
not limited to, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, outboard
motors, stern drive and inboard marine engines, personal
watercraft, lawn equipment, chainsaws, snowblowers,
portable generators, hand-held 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.
