      This is wonderful stuff. I use it in ALL the gas I put into lawn mowers and other small engines, and they almost always start on the first pull, even after sitting for a while. Sta-Bil is a MUST HAVE fuel additive given the ethanol content of gasoline sold today (ethanol attracts water, which can obviously rust and corrode fuel system components, to say nothing of the fact that water in gas doesn't burn very well!). Great for car engines, too.

      Followed instructions exactly, and even added less than the recommended amount to a fresh container of gas. Put the gas in my new lawnmower and it stopped working altogether! Had to replace the gas with a new, untreated fill up before it would work again. I guess this product might work with a lesser amount, but following directions did not work in my case.

                Love the container,it has its own messuring spout, dont have to guess. Also you can never over use it help control rust and build up on cyclenders and carb. You can leave fule in generators, lawnmowers, leaf blowers & snow blowers with out orry of dead fuel.

                    If you value your lawn mower, snow blower, generator, etc and expect it to operate when needed, STA-BIL is a must. I treat my fuel can all year round so I never have to worry when putting into storage.

                        Had trouble with gasoline going bad in some of my 'man toys' during storage due to absorbing moisture.
                        Gave this a try and have not had an issue since!!! I use in mowers, snowblower and generator and all will fire up quickly!
                        It is great to be able to fill the tank on all the equipment and not worry during the off season...I use it all year round.

                                  A:

                                  With reference to your inquiry on the Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer (32 oz.) - part# 22214, Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer will keep fuel fresh for up to 12 months depending on the quality, type and source of the gasoline, as well as storage conditions. However, any gasoline stored for more than 12 months will tend to lose volatility (ignitability), which could lead to hard starting or no start conditions after this long storage period. To reduce fuel volatility loss during storage, we recommend filling your tank at least 95% full with fresh fuel and Sta-Bil Stabilize, and store in cool conditions away from direct sunlight if possible.
