For a few years now I have been running Ethanol Shield in pretty much every thing except my daily drivers. I am not going to brag on how good it is but after you watch this video you may be buying it as well. IMO its a must for all PowerSport 2 & 4 strokes!!! And no I am not involved with any of this. I have also have had Zero issues with Ethanol sense I started using Ethanol Shield. It just plain works.

I called the factory and asked what the difference was between the mechanic in a bottle VS ethanol shield. They told me both will bond to Water, Ethanol, Gas, & Oil. The major difference is Mechanic in a bottle is designed to clean your carbs & injectors, Soften harden O-rings and get a rough engine running good again from the effect of Ethanol. They said after its running good to use Ethanol shield.

I buy it locally at Home Depot in the gallon size.

I switched from seafoam to Ethanol Shield a couple years ago after seeing this video. I keep around 65 gallons of gas on hand year round for our emergency generator and I can definitely see a difference between the two products. I used to change up the gas every 6 months and run the old stuff through the truck. Now I change it out once a year and it still smells like good gas. Plus overall it is cheaper than seafoam. I also have a large container of Mechanic in a Bottle which I run through the lawn mower, trimmers etc in the spring and snowblower in the fall.

Only downside is it is very hard to find where I live. Cabelas used to carry it in the fall but it appears they no longer do. It does look like I can order the larger ones through Home Depot but they only carry the small ones in store here.

we switched to their products a few years ago. we had previously used startron, which is still my second choice, but after using MIB a few times, i was sold.
we keep it here in the shop to use and sell and dont use anything else.

MIB works great for engines that haven't been run in years. Used it in post hole diggers to chainsaws and even 4 stroke small engines. Made those engines that wouldn't run/idle to work good as new.

Yeah,I have clear bottles of fuel in my shop to show people.Ive tried dumping numerous products in bottles of phase separated fuel and none of them have "fixed" the fuel.....it still separates after just an hour or so.Once it separates ,its done.

That is a great video and well worth the 19 mins. Iam courious what the third product was that he was using? Also would the gas clear up if the ethanol shield was added 1st instead of using MIB?
