more Sta-bil doesn't extend the service life of the gas in the tank ...
I picked up my 2016 today from the garage which has had 2 doses of Sta-bil in the tank since I couldn't really remember if I had some in it already or not.
Now, after 8 months of sitting, the fuel pump had some priming issues.
First turn of the key the fuel pump primed less than a second, the FI light started blinking and F1 or FI was displayed.
After cycling the ignition 4 or 5 times the pump started priming fine as usual.
Was it the double dose of stabil or the gas or simply none of these two factors at all - I don't know.
First 60 miles done - bike runs as good as the day I parked it in the garage - even with the 8 month old fuel (which was premium fuel.)
