Does any one else use fuel stabilizer when bikes off the road for a while? i've used it in my mower for years and now use it in my CCM r30 when its garaged for a break during the winter.I now use the lucas version but have used the briggs and statton version without problems.

Hi, When I SORN a bike that has a steel fuel tank, I drain the fuel (superunleaded...the worst type) ...carbs as well and put a gallon of paraffin in, fill the carbs and leave it over the Winter....come Spring, drain the paraffin (for use next Winter), fresh petrol and away we go.

Some of us are well `ard and ride through the winter. ;)
If I have to leave the bike for a few weeks I just turn the fuel off and run the bike till the carbs are empty.
Anyway, we don`t get much bad weather in Essex

much easier to put a 2teaspoons of stabilizer in tank of fuel if its gonna be off the road for awhile,or if you have a gallon or 2 saved in a can.----leaves no oxidation or residue to gum up float needles.
