Got gas?

3 posts in this topic

Not what you think.

Wondering how old is your boat gas? I have a built in tank and hate the gas gauge because it doesn't work very well. I don't use my boat much and the gas is over a year old. I only buy non-oxy and treat it with Seafoam.

I would love to cruise around the lake to burn it up, but don't want to get stranded either. Afraid to carry a gas can because gas smell from a spill is forever in a boat. Maybe I could strap one into the splash well area of the boat.

Anyway, how old is your boat gas and what do you treat it with?

There are advantages to the old portable gas tanks as far as knowing how much fuel you really have.

Take a two gallon can, and put in a plastic garbage bag.  That will keep any hypothetical spill from getting on the boat.  Even a 5 gallon can would fit easily in a large bag. 

Personally I find northern pike slime covers up the gas smell.
