I am kind of an additive nut so I just added Lucas Octane Boost to the gas I have been saving all winter in my boats gas tank. Weather caused be to have more gas left than I usually like to.
I have a station locally that has some racing fuel, which I might use to top off the tank.
It's a great discussion for us boat owners who want keep our older boats running for darn near forever. Considering for me a slalom skier a new PS 197 sells for about a $49,900 + sales tax + higher insurance...
It's your ride and your cash. Do whatever makes you feel good at night.
