Full Throttle Fuel Treatment

Recommended Posts

My mechanic (local reputable dealer) recommended that I use Full Throttle brand fuel treatment last year. I've had to take in my 4-stroke Honda twice already this year with Carb issues. Used to use Stabil (which was recommended by the guy that sold me my boat at the same dealer). Anyone have any experience with Full Throttle?

I have used Full Throttle in my 90 Honda tiller for three years without issue! Each winter with Full Throttle I have not run the motor out of gas or drained the carbs. I must say during the summer I use a can of sea foam per tank of fuel.

I had a 90 HP 2 stoke Merc that had issues only while I had it on the water. I brought it in to 2 different reputable mechanics that couldn't find anything wrong. Both ran it in tank and dyno without problems. I take it out and it still had problems occasionally. (Felt like one cylinder would drop out (1/2 power intermittently, then jolt back to full, without any real pattern, certain RPM or load).

2nd place suggested running Full Throttle through next tank. Boat never missed a beat again!!??? I sold the boat a month later, even let buyer take it out for a day. No issues again. Never found what problem was, but likely was "bad" gas and Stabil from when I put in storage the fall before.

I continue to use Full Throttle in new boat. I've heard and seen issues with Stabil, if not used correctly, it seems to "gum" things up and cause problems. Not sure why, as I'm no expert in this area, just an observation.

if not used correctly,

That can be said for ANY product. You can't really knock a product that dosen't work right when not used right.

Good point. Poorly worded. Just my experience with Stabil. The Stabil may have also been old (2 yr shelf life)along with not filling up with gas from a busy station, so it was my bad to start with. Thanks for the "Hey there,...."

Bottom line, I believe the Full Throttle cleared things up in by motor as it ran flawless after using it. No expert, just observations.

One thing you might be interested in doing is having your dealer install a water/fuel separator/filter between your gas tank and your engine. This will help clear up a lot of the bad gas that you may get and get the water/junk out of it before it hits your $$$$$ motor. It is probably cheaper than your trip to the mechanic.

So far so good after getting it back this last time. I'm going to sure I always have fresh Full Throttle and fresh non-ethanol premium from a place by my house.

Just out of curiosity, how often is a person suppose to change out the seperator/filter? is this a yearly thing or when you start to notice performance issues?

Generally, once a year unless you have problems.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
