It will stabilize fuel for 2 years. It cleans out the fuel system just great. If you use it on a regular basis ............... guess there'd be no reason to clean.

FWIW:
Additives work best when they are allowed to 'bond' with the chain of hydrocarbons.

Add the juice today, start the engine tommorrow and the new juice is where it needs to be.

We clean fuel tanks daily and fuel is our business. But keep in mind, most fuel additives have a shelf life once the bottle is opened.

I am using "Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment" for several years now. It does a great job keeping moisture out of the fuel system (boaters use it for winterizing) and stabilizes for about 2 years. Be mindful that some carbon buildup is desirable for optimum compression, so I would not overuse any of these products. Star Tron is not as much a "cleaner" as it is an anti-Ethanol treatment (the part of the gasoline that will hold moisture) and really enhances fuel mileage for me. Here's the link for this product:

Star-tron goes in all of my boats. Best thing you can do for ethanol gas. Hands down.

However.....I treat my gas with star-tron and store it with stabil.
