What do you guys run as a ratio for k1000mg for summer storage?


Filled the tank up and it looks like it's 1oz per gallon, just start the sled up and let it idle for five minutes and then shut it down?

You only need about 1/2 oz per gallon with that. I put a whole bottle in my sled once and it would not run after the summer and that was a mistake. I stopped using it.

K100, great stuff. I use it in all my stuff from chain saws to snow blowers. 1/2 oz to a gallon is fine. I would say the work bench tests I have found that it takes equal amounts of k100 to remove the same amount of water and keeps gas fresh and from going into phase. I have used gallons of startron in the past in larger boats, sleds and so on. I will never use it again. No were on the bottle does startron say it removes water and it doesn't. Do your own bench test with a gas jar, some gas and a little water.

If your fueling with gas with ethanol you don't want to let it sit with a full tank, that's old school, non ethanol. Store with rec. fuel or what I do seeing how its hard to find 91 octane non ethanol is drain the tank as far as you can, then throw in like 5 oz's of k100, then fill in spring. I also pour in a couple oz's of 2 stroke oil so its got lube right away when you start it.

So is this stuff much better than Sta-bil?
I use ethanol-free gas in everything with a carburetor, and Sta-Bil for storage, never have any problems.
