Hey "one wife", whats a good solution for storing fuel in my Kohler Command Pro sawmill engine? I've tried red Stabil & still had to drain "old fuel"before use. This most recent time the plastic bodies OEM pulse fuel pump has a split end on it. Does the 10% fuel split the plastic or just a "plastic problem"? The fuel filters seem to clog after a few months storage. I have a shed roof over the engine. Maybe a small electric fuel pump instead?
Star tron will help me store fuel in the engines tank for several months w/o problems?
FWIW, why not retire some place not so crowded as the Bahamas...
