Just thinking a little bit ahead..........what's the best fuel stabilizer to use in my boat using Ethanol Free gasoline ? ? ? I have always used Stabil but I'm open to other suggestions from you guys in the know.

Thanks for your time,

Bob

I use only the fuel additive products recommended by Evinrude for use with their E-TEC engines, in preference to experimental mixing of various gasolines and various additives made by various suppliers.

I figure that Evinrude probably has found a good fuel additive for their engines, and I don't see any particular reason to change to some other brand. As a general fuel stabilizer, I use Evinrude 2+4 Fuel Conditioner. See

Speaking of gasoline, E-TEC recommends 87 octane but Ethanol Free gas is only sold here in 91 or 93 octane ?  ?  ?

Consumers buying fuel specifically for use in an Evinrude E-TEC would constitute such a miniscule portion of the total gasoline fuel sold in any market that there could not be any influence exerted by their preferences on the fuel refiners, distributors, or retailers.

Hey GEB--that is great information--all about fuel additives and fuel octane, and right in the owner's manual.
