Bell Performance - Ethanol Defense

Fuel Additives - yikes some of these stings are horrible... like Bell Performance Ethanol Defense. 70% paint thinner - white spirits and lots of benzene products and a bit of methanol added in for good measure.. haha

I call stay away..... I got the MSDS - had to almost beg for it.. eash...

Looks like the right stuff... to pour into any tank especially the one of a boat that you want to ski behind

It sounds like a good paint brush cleaner?

That stuff isn't too bad. If there is much concern, some safety glasses and nitrile or latex gloves and you will be fine. IMO, it will do a fine job at taking care of ethanol.

That's only a 2 for Health and Flamm and a 0 for Reactivity. I've played with much worse! Now excuse me, while I go see how long it will take my eyebrows to grow back!

Sta-Bil Marine has been around for a year or two, should be a reputable product. But, for all I know it's identical to Ethanol Defense.

I use stabil and sea foam. My FIL swears by Pri-G......never used the stuff but bought him some for christmas.

Ideally I burn the gas to quickly to worry about it until winter.

Don't buy gas with ethanol in it

if not... i run the tank as low as possible at the end of the year and fill up in the spring... somewhere there is a link around here about ethanol and marine environment.

After everything I read - every ethanol additive has pale oil(kerosene), naptha, some kind of alcohol, mineral spirits, and some have anti-oxidants. Like Stabil 360 - 95 percent pale oil for $30!!!! but treats 120 gallons.

buy gas without ethanol.. tough if you don't have a marina near by or live by a station that sells a premium without ethanol.

I run seafoam - pale oil, naptha, and isopropyl alcohol, and will probably add http://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/...and-stabilizer for the antioxidants.

this appears to be the least expensive way to go. Gumout recently jumped in with a seafoam copy with antioxidant.

seafoam sells by the gallons so I can get the fairly inexpensively, and the briggs is only 6 bucks at wally world.

The naptha is the stabilizer and briggs uses the same anti-oxidant chemistry jet fuel vendors use.

Yeah I need to get out..
