    I use it exclusively winterizing 500+ boats a year...I believe it even says on the bottle "rejuvenates" old fuel. If you put it in your fuel 3 mos ago I would go ahead and run it. If not you might want to use it and possibly put in some octane booster as someone posted in an earlier thread. I'm going to be in the same predicament in the spring with my 135 xflow. If anyone can recommend a good octane booster please post as I have never used it before.

    Royal Purple boost with Royal Purple 2 stroke mix in min 91 fresh pump. Throw in Royal Purple Max Gear oil in the lower as well. I use 75 /90 but you can get it thicker, up to 140.
    Wait, what, 500+!!!

    We store 350ish boats a year plus all the boats winterized that are not stored...in truth something less than 500 most years

    I use it all the time especially here where gas sits for some time. I actually run it in the motor then let it sit.

    Thanks for the advice I run around 150 compression that is the way the motor came. I have finished the storm repair and I am ready for the water was 80 yesterday. I did my fair share of winterizing but there was no ethanol when I was doing it. Would love to buy some aces but royal purple boost is available. Rick
