Got a few litres of this http://www.aspenfuel.co.uk/index.php...kylate-petrol/ thought I might run it through the engines and fuel lines for winter

RIBase
Don't think there's any reason not to-it really doesn't seem to go off. I've had some here for 3 years that's still fine. I put it in my generator occasionally.

Hi Mick, do you use this instead of normal unleaded fuel? I am about to start winterising my outboard and read about fuel stabiliser. Can I use this instead? How do I use this? Do I use it like normal fuel in the fuel tank? I am new to boating so appreciate any advice.

Me personally am just going to run it through my carbs as it doesn't go off
Apparently petrol goes off more or less as soon as u buy it never had problems in the past with fuel going off either and its a waste of time putting stabelizer in old fuel as well

Hi all,

Aspen will keep for 3-5 years before it even starts to breakdown.
We now have over 200 stocking dealers all round the uk.

So you can save the 20 postage.

Check out the dealer map on our website or PM with your postcode.

Please ask any questions and I will answer you with facts.

Kind regards

Eddie

At 20 per gallon it will make running those 200 hp really fun to run, one of our sponsors on the race boat is FUEL SET, I haven't read all the paperwork on it but it does make a difference

Hi, we are suggesting Aspen as a storage fuel that can mix with cheaper fuel for day to day use.

We are all giving out the same message that pump fuels have changed and are poor quality in some cases.

Kind regards

Eddie
