- Tips To Avoid Gasoline Breaking Down During Storage
Modern gasolines tend to breakdown while in storage. Sometimes these new fuels even destroy rubber floats, diaphragms, etc. in carburetor and fuel pumps. We recently saw a '57 Chevrolet barrel opened to reveal the accelerator pumps had been dissolved by the newer fuels.
Draining your gas tank for winter storage may be impractical for many. A product called Sta-Bil® stabilizes your fuel for short-term storage. This product can be bought at lawn and garden stores, tractor dealerships, boat yards and even some private airports...any place gasoline engine vehicles are frequently stored.
