    Default Bad gas in parker?

    i have always got my gas at parker oil for the past 4 years due to the fact that i thought they made a no nonsense fuel with out the normal bullshit we get out of california. lately i have been fighting a water problem in my tanks almost the whole summer. where does every one buy there gas? any one having the same issue as me?

    I buy my fuel there sometimes and havent had any issues this year. I have heard from a couple other guys that they have had the same problem as you though. Not sure if they got the fuel at Parker oil though. Do you run a water/fuel seperator?

    Parker Oil has been notorious for your complaint. I'd buy your gas elsewhere.

    Tim, I thought he said he bought it at Terrible's ??? Either way, pump gas is a huge risk to put in your boat if you have nice parts....just my opinion.

    So do you think Parker Oil's AV Gas could be bad as well from time to time?

    Im pretty sure that was terribles - because goody also got gas at terribles over 4th and HALF yes HALF their tanks were water. Boat wouldnt run, they ended up draining the tanks and fueiling at parker oil.
