I'm sold on a product a friend told me about after having starting problems with my sons quad. Star tron has done wonders for my '79 bug, all quads, tractor, weedwacker. This ethanol crap is bad for everything

I use Startron in all my gas, so far so good. I hate this ethanol crap too. We held out here at the sevice station I work at until our supplier would no long sell us straight gas.

Ethanol is a beautiful thing... For engine repair shops.

Seafoam works for me, a dash in every other tankful.

I love Seafoam, never heard of Startron. You guys use it in all your engines all the time? Ethanol is horrible. It ate the all the inners of my 85 KLT 110 carb in a week.

I've never heard of Startron either, where do you get it at? I have been using Seafoam for years and love it!!! It has performed miracles right before my very eyes. Well maybe not miracles, but I've never had any problems with cold weather starts or even starts after long periods of storage with it. Can you use the Startron as an oil additive also? That's what originally hooked me on Seafoam to begin with.

I use the Star Tron in my gas all the time. I think you can only use it in gas, not oil. Walmart and Napa sells it in my area. Be careful, you can get different concentrations and both are 8oz bottles. One treats 48 gallons and the other treats 128 gallons. Here is a link to Napa's page.

Alright, so from a mechanic's perspective which is the better of the 3 ?

I've used Sta-bil in all gas for my small engine stuff since this ethanol bs broke out- no probs. Periodically I use Sea Foam in the quads as well.
Anybody know the cost comparisons ?

Im a fan of evirotec GTA our Napa rep cam in with the local evirotec distributor and showed us what happens with ethanol mixed with water how they phase and cause problems. After the GTA was added it would keep that from happening!!! Toyota's catalytic converters are not a fan of ethanol ether after adding a can to my truck and driving it ten miles to work BINGO my check engine light turns off
