    no, but do you still get it free? if not thats gonna cost you alot for no real benefit. Cheaper just to get a $1 bottle of octane booster.

    ethanol is a pain, but the guys on Capmel.com seem to be sticking with seafoam with good results. I wonder if there is a seafoam made specifically for ethanol applications?

    What kind of set up were you having problems with? fuel injection?

    No I Leave my Plastic tank Out in the weather then go to use the fuel a couple of weeks Later and the Ethanol Has Bonded with Water and seperated out ...

    Seafoam , Marine Stabil , or Startron NONE of these Work !!!

    what about a water seperator? or is that where the problem is once it bonds in the tank?

    Is it the sunlight penetrating the plastic? is so would covering it somehow slow the process?

    Simple fix, stop leaving your tank in the rain. All these products work and work very well. However can only do so much. There is a point where the percentages of absorption out power the ability of the fuel treatments to counter it.

    Even easier fix; head down to a local marina and buy gas there as it had no ethanol in it. Fill a 5-gallon tank or two and have it at the ready.

    I agree. I stop by the marina with a jug or two and buy gas there. Since I started doing that, my engine runs much better, and I am helping (although not very much) the local marina.
