  • Sta-bil 360 or Sta-bil storage?

    I just wanted to get some opinions of which product to use for winter storage. I live in Ohio and its approx. 30 degrees today so i don't ride in that cold of temperature. If we get some freak 50 or 60 degree temps between now and next spring i will probably take a ride but if it stays cold the bike will stay parked. So with that in mind which would be the better one to use, 360 or storage?

    Thanks

    Either one will do the job for 6 months, I used seafoam in the past but this year added fresh gas with regular staybil.

        Marine grade sta-bil is the most robust formula
        they (Sat-Bil) mfg's that’s also got the latest evaporative tech
        that coats the fuel tank with a protective layer to reduce
        corrossion issues from ethanol,moisture,etc.
        I have been using it for many yrs with great results in classic
        Classic cars,motorcycles,small power equipment,etc.
        I use 1oz marine grade sta-bil per 5gals fuel which is the better more robust dose ratio the mfg used to rec vs the
        weaker 1oz per 10gals fuel ratio the mfg changed to
        a while back.

          I always use 2 ounces in the full tank. Won’t hurt anything to go double dose on it. I’ve always used the regular stuff. Just don’t forget to re-do the treatment when you put it back away from the odd day out.


          Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

            I have always used MMO. 2 oz's to every fillup no matter how many gallons I put in. 104,000 miles so far and NO problems.

              Stabil storage, have used it for 12 years. Works great.

                  I guess i didn't realize Seafoam was a gas stabilizer...

                    I didn't realize MMO was a stabilizer either. Looks like there are many alternatives, thanks for all the comments!

                              Stabil contains significant quantities of hindered phenol anti-oxidants that are sacrificial anti-oxidants. These are consumed until depleted, keeping the oxygen from attacking double bonds, etc in the fuel molecules. MMO does contain, I think, some non-hindered phenolic but this is not really a good anti-oxidant as the phenol can also act as an acid and its anion as a nucleophilic attack agent . Stick with Stabil for keeping gasoline fresh in storage and use MMO for an UCL, cleaning material.
