    Have one more hunt left this week and then putting the boat away.
    I have a new to me 40 hp Etech on this year. Looking at the wintering process and it recommends 2+4 fuel stabilizer. I always run Seafoam in my tank and premium gas
    is there something else I should use for storage?

    I run Seafoam in all of my small engines. They all start right off after being stored. That reminds me I need to get another can when I get more gas for the snow blower.

    I tend to think of Seafoam as overpriced advertising. B-12 chemtool tends to be about $3.50 a can vs the $8-$11 for Seafoam.

    My son used the spray type Seafoam to "decarbonize" his 50 Yamaha. I was amazed at the amount of gunk that came out.

    I liked it better when it was around 5.99 a can. But it still works at 11 a can. Advance will run buy one get one regular though.

    Buy Seafoam by the gallon, it’s cheaper. I like to pull the plugs & spray Seafoam in the cylinders (aerosol can) before storing. On a new engine I would strictly follow manufacturers directions on winterizing though.

    Yep, for storage I use Star Tron. Marine Sta-bil is ok too. Seafoam is not necessarily a storage option, but it works great to clean the engine out after being stored for awhile.
