    I have been using this. I still had problems with the fuel in my bike and snowblower when using Stabil.

    Av gas I use it in my small stuff all year around you only use a few gallons in a saw or weed eater anyway it can sit for years and starts first pull no waking up in the nite in January wondering if you put stabilised gas in or not not everyone agrees with letting dry float bowels sit,rubber and gaskets dry out and moisture condensation in empty places

    Seafoam + Startron if using eth gas. Seafoam only if eth free. I never drain anything. Bike has sat for up to nine months with zero issues.

    I mix Stabil in everything at all times. I only buy/mix enough gas to ride, and I ride every weekend, but you never know when you might get hurt and the bikes will just be sitting...

    Temperatures are well into the 80's and sadly red sticker riding on my favorite trails is ending today. The 250 is getting stored until November (unless a miracle cold snap comes in)
    With Summer temps well into the 90s and 100's soon my garage gets even hotter. I have had a terrible time with the damage California fuel does in the carb, fuel filter and fuel line. It eats metal. I have tried various brands of stabilizers with no luck, the ethanol wins.

    On my last ride I turned the petcock off and let the fuel run through. I will now (1) drain the tank and (2) drain every drop of fuel I can from the carb (3) fog the engine.

    What more can I do....more specifically is there something I should run through the tank and carb while draining them to help get rid of any trace of the nasty ethanol?

    I use to do similar in winter here till I got studded tires and grip heaters, that should work.
    Another option would be get a couple gallons of race gas and run through it on your last ride.

    Studded tires and heated grips means you see some real weather. We get warm, hot or burning. Thanks for the suggestion on the race gas.

    Haha, Hot here is warm with humidity that kills you.
    Heated grips are awesome even when it's not cold. Use to dry gloves or reduce cramps.
