Contaminated Fuel What To Do?

Posted by

Do you have a mower, pump, generator or brushcutter that is becoming hard to start or just not starting at all? 

Engines not starting or not running correctly, is often due to stale or contaminated fuel.  These issues can often be costly to repair, but dont worry we have the solution.

Have you tried Honda’s fuel stabilizer?

This product will eliminate stale/contaminated fuel concerns for approximately 12 months, if it is used with a fresh container of a known good brand of fuel.

For best results keep fuel container 95% full to minimise oxygen mixing with the fuel and keep the container tightly sealed and out of direct sunlight.

Note: It will not refresh old fuel.

For ease of use mix with the following metric ratio:

  1. Long term storage - Add 30cc to ten litres of fuel. Add 15cc to five litres of fuel.
  2. Infrequent operation – Add 8cc to ten litres of fuel. Add 4cc to five litres of fuel.
  3. If you are still having problems then contact us directly for an assessment.
