It is difficult to drain all of the fuel from
equipment before storage, and doing so would expose the system
to other problems, including the formation of rust and corrosion
on the bare metal in the tank and fuel system and the drying and
cracking of gaskets and seals. Some fuels are pre-treated with
oxidation inhibitors that allow them to be stored for short periods
without forming excessive deposits, while other fuels have no
inhibitors at all.
AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer (AST) reduces the
oxidation process that occurs when fuel is stored for extended
periods, improving performance, extending equipment life and decreasing
maintenance expenses. Treat rate is one ounce with every 2.5 gallons
of fuel. One bottle treats 40 gallons.
