There is no treatment for ethanol gas which will preserve it past 6 months to a year. Some ethanol gas lasts less than that. Also drain all the old gas out unless you want to clean the carb again.

    Oh but an additive for ethanol does exist! Lucas makes this snake oil..
    I will get the name for you tomorrow!
    Also, I think Berryman's makes a stabilizer for ethanol...

    P.s.
    Just saw the qualifier for "past 6 months". My bad. I will still get the names for my mentioned stuff.

      There is not an ethanol treatment which will stop the two probelms with ethanol, phase seperation, and water absorbtion. If ethanol sits it seperates from the gasoline and turns to water, since water is heavier than fuel, it gets sucked up first by the fuel tank pickup, then mixes in the carb, then bad things happen.....or in humid enviroments it sucks the water from the air and again fuel becomes stale.
      Addtives may help, but they will not prevent this from happening. I work on equipmemt for a living, i have tried them all. Simply put buy non ethanol gas if you plan on storing something for over 6 months!
