Easy Fix For Ethanol & E-10's Future Problems

My friends new Edlebrock Engines fuel system puked after 3,500 miles. He took the carb and fuel lines apart and found all kinds of little rubber bits and other trash in his system. It actually shut down on him on the way home and had to have it flat bedded to his house.

He did extensive research and found out it was the Ethanol that destroyed his fuel system. He came upon this great product that gets rid of all the Ethanol and E-10 issues. I took his advice and have been using this in all my gasoline powered engines (cars, lawnmowers, weedwhips, generators etc.) for the past two years with no problems. He has had no problems since he replaced his fuel line and cleaned his carb and started using this product. It is called Star*Tron. ************************

****************I don't sell this product but just thought I would share my experience.

See ya on the boulevard!!!

This looks suspiciously like a sales pitch.

Sta-Bil makes an ethanol treatment. It protects fuel systems from the effects of ethanol. No need to buy from Evil Bay , just go to Mc Parts storee .
I use it in my lawnmower and Porta gen to keep the carb from being dissolved.
Newer carb kits are available that have ethanol resistant soft parts,like needle for seats and accel pumps etc.

QMI fuel treatment does this as well. I've been using it for years. Increases octane ratings, disperses water, upper cylinder lube, stabilizer, carb and injector cleaner all from one bottle. And, it's been around for more than 30 years. Great stuff.

The first post is borderline commercial advertising, with the links and pricing removed, leaving the product name, it can stay. Feel free to post in the Company Reviews section.

Agreed, sounds like the friend had old, crappy hoses...
New hoses made for current gasoline should not have those problems.

I'm not involved in selling any product but calling Star Tron snake oil or referring it to as something only available on Ebay isn't fair. It is a recognized product amoung boaters and is sold in marinas and several prominant marine parts catalogs.
