Fuel Stablizers, Conditioners and Cleaners

I did this test because I have had problems with water-ethanol-gas going bad in my boats, bikes, and 5th wheel. I took several fuel stabilizers and conditioners and put the same amount of water in the plastic container and different fuel additives to test what would happen. Once phase separation or condensation occurs you will have water puddle at the bottom of your tank and or carburetor bowl.

From left to right:

#1 Sta-Bal

#2 STP Complete fuel system cleaner

#3 Maxima Fuel storage-stabilizer

#4 Startron

#5 FuelMedic

There technology prevents the formation of this water by creating a chemical reaction that permanently removes the water from the fuel.

#6 Lucas Fuel Conditioner

#7 Briggs & Stratton

#8 Lucas Deep clean fuel system

The color at the very bottom 1/8 inch of each container is just a reflection from the uneven bottom of the container. I could not get a shot without it showing.

What are you running in you engines and what are you using in your fuel when storing your bikes?

Was just wondering why Sea Foam was not one of your original test items.

Thanks for showing the Sea Foam test. Did it really not absorb the water at all?
