Winter Is Coming: Is Your Fuel Ready?

Lifestyles - Wed, 10/07/2015 - 4:04pm
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Winter is coming -- and that means it's time to store seasonal tools and recreational equipment. Safe, smart storage of motorcycles, RVs, power equipment and seasonal cars goes a long way towards keeping them at their best to ensure peak performance in the spring.

To keep the fuel in gas-powered machines and equipment in peak shape through winter storage, consider these three elements:

Time Is the Enemy

Fuel in gas-powered equipment that remains in storage during the winter months needs to be stabilized to ensure easy starts and full power in the spring. Untreated fuel begins to oxidize, losing quality and combustibility over time, which leads to engines that are hard to start or run rough.


Draining gas from power equipment or cars is one way to prevent gunk and debris from forming, but it isn't always a practical solution. One alternative -- add a fuel stabilizer. However, you need to choose the right treatment to ensure maximum fuel quality. In general, ethanol-blended gasoline should be used within 30-45 days. However, an enzyme stabilizer, such as Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment, will stabilize gasoline for up to 2 years. Star Tron does much more than simply stabilize; the unique enzyme formula also helps improve fuel combustibility to ensure easy starts, full power, improved fuel economy and decreased emissions.


Some fuel stabilizers contain many of the same anticorrosion and antioxidant additive packs that are already present in pump-grade gas. Adding more of these add-pack compounds can degrade fuel quality causing engines to run rough and smoky when they are started after winter storage. An enzyme stabilizer is designed to work in conjunction with pump-grade gas additives to keep fuel fresh for maximum performance in the spring. Fresh fuel and easy engine starts are better for fuel economy, which means lower emissions and less environmental impact. And it's not just for winter; an enzyme fuel treatment can maximize fuel quality all year long.
