Of course your dealer said you should buy some from him.

You could also buy a can of Coleman fuel from Walmart and have almost the same thing.

A can of naphtha.

If your worried about ethanol, use a station that doesn't carry it. LINKY

If you get Top Tier gasoline it is supposed to be better blended than the regular stuff, and is recommended by BMW.

If you can get ethanol free that is better but at least this stuff is better than the federal minimum

The same guys on here making fun of Startron use are posting in another thread about their fuel pump failures and clogged carbs:eek1. The stuff actually works very well. We put it in a Vino scooter and it sat for 8 mos. in 100deg temps in my shed. The old gas in it fired on the second kick last week:clap. You be the judge if untreated Ethanol fuel would do as well.

90K+ miles on my bike and never once used StarTron and NEVER had a single problem with Carbs or Fuel Pump.

Star Tron
 
5 years in an 8,000 watt generator my dad had & that I set up for him. Third pull start.

Think long term storage with that stuff.

If your bike is not real old, just ride it. But then, you don't say what year or model MC it is.

Only add this stuff right before you want to leave it sit for a while.

It's fuel stabilizer. Just Like Sta-Bil. Except, with a ton more marketing hype. Originally sold to boaters, known for having deep pockets... they realized a huge untapped market in powersports. Use it to store, the rest of the time, it offers no benefit... unless a lighter wallet affords you higher top speed. :rofl

Starbrite Startron
 
I have absolutely no clue how much it helps, but everyone of my bikes and generators have some amount in the tanks at all times all year long.

Great idea for seldom used stuff.

Once again you don't know what you are talking about. Startron can convert phase separated fuel into a burnable fuel. Your sta-bil can't do that. Please quit posting your stupid non-knowledgeable remarks in these threads.

I put a shot of Startron in the tank and top it off with fresh gas before storing the metal-tanked bikes for the winter. They start right up like I rode them yesterday in the spring. Is it the Startron? I don't know, but I'm not messing with success. The bikes with plastic tanks get the tank and carb drained.

Big fan of SeaFoam... with 6 bikes and lousy winters, some of my bikes sit for weeks/months without moving. Gonna try some Startron for the added "Ethanol" treatment it claims.
