Gasoline is not formulated for long-term storage and can start to de-grade in as little as 60 days, leading to varnish and sludge deposits that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors, stick floats and cause poor en-gine 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.
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer (AST) reduces the oxidation process that occurs when fuel is stored for extended periods, improving performance, extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance expenses.
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, including fuel that contains up to 10% ethanol.
