Maintenance Matters- Fuel Additives For Outboards


Most gasoline contains ethanol, a powerful solvent, which attracts water. You can take steps to avoid performance issues, or even damage your outboard. I recommend installing a marine fuel/water separating filter. It removes debris from your fuel as small as 10 microns and, of course, removes water from your fuel. You should also learn where the fuel filter is on your engine. Clean and replace it at recommended intervals. I recommend adding fuel additives for outboards from Yamalube including the Fuel Stabilizer and Conditioner and Ring Free Plus Fuel Additive. This will help prevent carbon buildup. Fuel additives will help prevent fuel oxidation and buildup in your fuel line and filter. — Steve Pennaz
