difficult to drain all of the fuel from equipment before storage,
and doing so would expose the system to other problems, including
the formation of rust and corrosion on the bare metal in the tank
and fuel system and the drying and cracking of gaskets and seals.
Some fuels are pre-treated with oxidation inhibitors that allow them
to be stored for short periods without forming excessive deposits,
while other fuels have no inhibitors at all.
Gasoline Stabilizer reduces the oxidation process that occurs
when fuel is stored for extended periods, improving performance,
extending equipment life and decreasing maintenance expenses.
Package sizes include:
- 16-oz. Bottle
- 55-gallon Drum
four-stroke recreational vehicles, hand-held power equipment, small
engines, construction and farm equipment are commonly operated
seasonally or infrequently, then stored for long periods of time.
During these periods of inactivity, and as a result of fluctuations
in ambient temperatures, water vapor can form condensate within the
engine. When this condensate comes into direct contact with steel
and iron components, it forms surface corrosion on cylinder liners,
piston rings, anti-friction bearings and steel/iron contact surfaces
on rotational seals. Long periods of storage can also dry out
cylinders, often resulting in permanent damage when the equipment is
taken out of storage and dry started. In addition, fuel within
stored equipment tends to oxidize and form varnish and sludge
deposits that clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors, stick
floats and cause poor engine performance, starting problems,
increased maintenance expenses and decreased equipment life.
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer treats 2.5 gallons of fuel.
