I buy pure (no ethanol) gasoline that I keep on hand in a couple of 5-gallon cans for snow blowers, lawn mowers, power washers, portable generators etc. The STABIL products that I buy indicate their use for alcohol-blended fuels. Are there any fuel preservatives specifically for pure gasoline and which one would you recommend? Thanks for your help.


I don't think you will have issues with the pure (AKA white gas in my time) Not Cheap about $1.50 more per gallon than ethanol gas, the ethanol is the reason you need a stabilizer.

To those that don't understand, this not premium gas, but Non-ethanol gas, harder to find than diesel.

100LL avgas is good stuff if you can get it, but it’s against the law for airports to sell it to someone not using it in an airplane. They usually are supposed to ask you for your aircraft registration number when purchasing gas. FYI

Most gasoline additives, Sta-bil in particular, are 95% or more kerosene. They try very hard to keep that a secret. No matter what the other ingredients are, at standard dosage you get about 1/10th of a teaspoon of all of it per gallon of fuel.

Seafoam is mostly alcohol, but does have some benefit in cleaning a carburetor.

I use regular gas with ethanol in all my gas engines. Every can gets some type of fuel stabilizer. All the engines run fine after sitting for 6 months. My John Deere lawn tractor manual specifies to put a stabili
zer in the fuel always.

Thank you all, I would just like to be sure that if I occasionally forget to empty the gas out of an engine or two, or leave it in too long, I won't wind up with equipment that won't run and carburetors that need to be replaced.

I am with you owen - glad I don't have to be all concerned about running around the country looking for special gas.

I don't even use any additive during the summer. Oh and I buy where the price is right. [emoticon]

I think most have no availability or no clue what truly "NON" ethanol gas is!

Buy mine at CENEX a local Farm CO-OP.
