    Default old fuel... new fuel mix??

    I have about 10 gallons of pump gas from when the boat broke 14months ago
    left in one tank.

    Do you think mixing with new and octane boost would be ok?
    Or should I add 100octane to it 50-50

    Or drain and start fresh???

    It would not take long to cruise that fuel out during the break in outting with no hard loads or big boost.


    What do you think?

    turn on your electric pump and pump it out and into your truck.

    Troy sealed tank or vented? Makes a difference. sealed tank run it with some fresh stuff on top of it. Old stale fuel just add higher octane to it and burn it. Did it varnish up? Is your boat up and runing?? If so good to hear.

    seriously... take a sample out and dump into a glass or jar and let it sit for a few minutes...

    any problems with the fuel will be very apparant... (it will separate)

    if its bad pump it all out and don't use it..

    been there done that...

    ya ya ya...

    fockers are all like that little bitch of a birdie on my shoulder.


    Filled the other tank and she's running. The other fuel did not look bad but did not smell like power making stuff. I will mix and add 108 booster.

    and will run with the fuel selector valve to both and run a full break in tank through it and after that it should be all good.

    Thanks for the reassurance that I'm a cheap ass.
