Just wondering if anyone is storing their vette for the winter, and if so, adding any fuel stabilizer to the gas.
Man I hate putting this thing away:( I need to move to Cali.:cool:

Yes, sta-bil is a good aditive for storage of any gas powered engine. Be sure, to top off the gas tank also, to help prevent moisture accumulating inside the tank.

Zippy :z: :z:

I've been storing my vettes since '98 and have never used any additive. They fire right up in April and don't exhibit anything noticible in reduced performance. I generally store from mid-Oct thru Mid April...6 months. The Z went into storage on Oct 15 this year. By the way, I do top off the tank to avoid condensation and I do not run the engine during hibernation.

I had a talk with a chemical engineer from Mobil and he says that you are throwing your money away on Gas stabilizers.He claims that additives in modern gasolines prevent the varnishing you would find years ago.He says fill up your tank to prevent moisture and don't worry about dry gas,the major refineries already have alcohol in the fuel to absorb water.I have stored my Tractors,Quads and Musclecars over 6 months in winter and they all start just fine in the spring
