Anyone using fuel additive for winter storage? Is Stabil OK or are you using something else?? Thanks, Dennis

I use the marine stabil because it works better for the ethanol gas. I found a gas filler tube extension above my spare tire. Then you can pour the stabil through that.

Thanks Bruce, found the little funnel on the inflater retainer.. That spare tire must have been an extra cost option, I did not get one.. ;)

Use the little plastic nozzle jammed in the foam with the emergency tire pump. Push it into the filler neck to get the flap open and allow the fuel additive to flow past the overflow. Otherwise it will just run all over the ground behind the wheel.

I use either Stabil-Marine or Seafoam. Seafoam costs more but lasts longer in preventing ethanol separation.

The weather has been so unbelieveably good here in Nebraska that I have been driving ours on the weekends! Therefore, I have to keep adding more Stabil. Good problem to have if you ask me!
