Fuel Remedies

Eliminates & Prevents Ethanol Fuel Problems
Ethanol / E10 fuels increase the amounts of water and sludge in your fuel tank. Star Tron breaks down this excess water and sludge to sub-micron size allowing it to be safely burned away during normal engine operation. Therefore Star Tron prevents phase separation and fuel gelling, eliminating ethanol fuel problems.

Star Tron Is Ideal For All Engines, Including:
ATVs, Cars, Trucks, Boats (2-cycle & 4-cycle), Lawn Mowers, Generator, Heavy Equipment, Snowmobiles, RVs, WeedEaters, Personal Watercraft, Diesel Engines. By breaking apart large clusters of fuel molecules to create more surface area, additional oxygen can react during the fuel combustion phase, resulting in a more complete burn of the fuel charge, improved fuel economy, engine power, throttle response and reduced toxic emissions. Star Tron removes carbon deposits, keeping engines clean and operating at peak performance.

Star Tron® uses its enzyme technology to maintain fuel quality and slow the deterioration of fuel components. Gasoline or Diesel fuel treated with Star Tron® has a shelf life in excess of two years.

Sherwoods recomendation: Using this treatment for 4 stroke engines is fine, but try to stick to the "over 1 month dump it" (in your car) rule. For two stroke engines, you really have to stick to the one month rule.

We have this additive in stock for both gasoline and diesel engines.

Stihl motomixRedmax fuelVP fuelPremanufactured fuel does not use ethanol, allowing it to maintain stability for up to two years after the seal is broken, so it can be stored longer and will stay fresh in your equipment during storage periods. We've had great success with Stihl, Redmax, and VP fuels.

MotoMix® also is environmentally conscious – the fuel is non-aromatic and the engine oil is fully synthetic and highly biodegradable. Created for excellent engine performance and superior lubrication

The fuel will last up to 2 years!  This is a major boost for rescue equipment where the fuel may sit in a can for months on end!  YOU NEED THIS!

 Fuel Stabilizer

We highly recommend using fuel stabilizer when gas will sit for longer than 1 month, or use it ALL the time for seasonal machines such as leaf blowers, saws, & snowblowers.

  • Put it right into the gas can itself!

  • Protect your infrequently run equipment (generators, leafblowers, snowblowers,etc.)

  • Preserves your handheld 2 stroke equipment

  • Keep your machine ready for the next season!

The new Stabil 360 (Marine and non-Marine) helps protect metal fuel tanks as well.

You see, fuel wants to break back down into a "dinosaur". It will turn into jelly, then into varnish if given enough time. This leads to costly repairs, and replacement of parts. Worst case scenario, the fuel will need to be drained out and fresh fuel added. It may not be a cure-all, but it sure beats a new carburetor.

Dry Gas

Dry Gas is a different product. It is designed to disperse water in gasoline to the point of being able to be sucked into the fuel pump. In our opinion, it is not a preferred additive for our industry, as most small engines are gravity fed and not pump fed. It also contains alcohol. We get enough of that in our fuel, and believe me it does not help us! Alcohol also eats away at many rubber pieces, such as diaphragms, fuel lines, and more. So, you tell me... think it'll help?   DO NOT USE IT.

Amsoil PI Fuel Conditioner

P.i. Performance Improver (API)This product is mixed with the fuel (20 gal. per bottle, or about 1 oz. per gallon). It helps clean out the carburetor/injection, and also the intake side of the combustion chamber. We have had success in using this in generators that ran roughly from sitting too long with fuel in them. Use this in your car too!  It just might be the best tune-up you have ever had for less than $10 !!

I have at least one customer who swears by this stuff, as does his grandfather.  They have witnessed firsthand, the benefit this product provides in cleaning the upper combustion chamber.

 Our Fuel Stabilization procedure is this:

Put the fuel stabilizer into the fuel can, this stabilizes ALL your fuel.

To maintain most small engines after the season is over:

  1. Pour stabilized fuel into the gas tank of the machine and then run the machine to ensure that treated gas gets through the carburetor (10 minutes).
  2. Turn off the engine.
  3. Empty the gas back out of the machine's fuel tank.
  4. Start the machine, and let it idle until it is out of gas.
  5. Most residual fuel left in the carburetor or gas tank will now be treated, and excess is spent.

To maintain generators:

  1. Stabilize the fuel in the tank(s)
  2. Run the machine 10 minutes to circulate the treated fuel into the carburetor.
  3. Turn off the fuel valve (in-line, or located on the bottom of the tank, hopefully).
  4. Let the engine die out, so there is 'no more' fuel in the carb. (There is always a little left).
  5. Or for extended sitting time, just empty out all the fuel, and run it dry.

This is the  most fail safe procedure we have found thus far, but unfortunately, there are still no guarantees.
