Marine Fuel Additives
Most boats run through a tank of fuel every 90 days or so. The longer gas remains unused in a tank, it begins to break down and can cause fuel line and engine damage. This is because most fuels now contain high levels of Ethanol. Ethanol fuels are bad news for marine engines. The ethanol attacks the rubber components of the engine, fuel hoses and fiberglass tanks. It also absorbs water, and when it has time to sit will cause phase separation in the fuel. Using marine fuel additives will not only keep fuel from breaking down, but will also protect your engine against corrosive damage. That’s a small price to pay to protect one of your greatest investments!
The Best Fuel Additives and Solid Advice from Wholesale Marine
Wholesale Marine carries the best marine fuel additives to protect your boat’s engine from Johnson Evinrude OMC, Mercury and MerCruiser, Sta-Bil, and Starbrite. Say the words fuel additive and most boaters will think of Sta-bil, a household name for fuel stabilizers used to winterize any boat. Today’s more powerful engines mean that fuel can break down faster. Products such as Johnson’s 2+4 Conditioner or Mercury’s Quickleen, will stabilize fuel, inhibit corrosion, and will also absorb destructive moisture. Starbrite’s very popular Star-Tron, and Sta-bil both have additives that prevent the damage caused by Ethanol. Diesel engines need stabilizers and conditioners too, so just ask our knowledgeable staff which products are best for your boat.
