Thread: Winterizing?

    Default Winterizing?

    Is it necessary to flush the fuel system? My car is in a heated garage but I'm not sure about letting the fuel sit in the throttle body especially with the 10% alcohol content in todays gas.

    do you start it every now and again during the winter ..or it just sits to spring time.

    I would suggest some sort of fuel stabilizer ( efi or carb) for the winter months and in the spring …drain out the old gas and replace with a fresh batch .





    interesting article about fuel storage ..

    That article has some good info. I didn't realize how it could turn to water at the bottom of the tank. I already have a kind of fuel stabilizer in the tank. I spike my fuel with Marvel Mystery oil which seems to help greatly with detonation. But I will get a stabilizer especially for E10 and go with your suggestions. Thanks for the reply.
