Ethanol and Springtime: My Results

After topping off the tank, adding stabil, and putting the boat away for the winter, I like many others, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.

So far this spring, fired up the engine and noticed not issues. Just changed the plugs, water pump, and fuel water separator.

Separator had the tinyest amout of water in it. So, my fears were for naught and I'm happy to say that after all the work, the engine fired right up again and seemed to be running better than ever.

Just thought I would share my experiences. Hope others have similar results.
