Fuel additive

What do people recommend to add to fuel tanks to stabalise fuel during these winter months. Engine is drained and serviced and not being used persently, but fuel sits in tank.
Startron do a fuel for gas and deisel treatment. Is this OK or what else would you do?

This is what I use....

Although I pretty sure it's cheaper than this in my local motor factors!

FuelSet

Been using an Aussie product called FuelSet (by Liquid Engineering) for years; in everything.
Cars, Boats, Lawnmowers, Heating Oil, etc. Kills Diesel Bug, gets rid of H20, octane stabiliser etc.

UK distributor does mail order from Saiisbury. Google 'liquid engineering'.

Local garden machinery centres sell it too for use in mowers while stored for winter.

You'll want to find a local Distributor for Shellbourne Fuels catalysts. They are perfect for your application. You can count on instant start...even after several months in storage.
EPA Listed...including Marine Applications.
Hope this helps.
