Stabil in 5.3 Chevy

My 2015 Chevy is my tow vehicle but not my daily driver. Now that my season is over I don't drive nearly as much. Maybe once or twice a month.

Opinions on putting stabil in the gas tank? The last few tanks I have ran no ethanol gasoline.

According to the manual the only GM recommend treatment is the one they sell at dealerships. From what I read it is just an injector cleaner.

Thoughts?

Do what makes you feel comfortable. Foe me, if I went through a tank of non-ethanol fuel in a month I would be perfectly comfortable. To me it's the non-ethanol fuel that make the difference. If it makes you sleep better at night, add Stabil. Will not hurt anything but your wallet. Even then it's minimal expense.
Now if you are going to store the car for more than a month or 2, then yes...add Stabil.

That were kind of my thoughts. I got the 32oz red jug yesterday, had second thoughts about putting any in. Should take about 10 oz for my 26 gallon tank.

Thanks guys.
