    anyone here know if there is a fuel stabilizer for these little engines? Iam going to ride as long as I can but these midwest winters are bitterly cold!
    or would it be a better Idea just to drain the fuel for the winter, if not going to rideon a regular basis?:confused:

    Sta-bil works great. Use the recommended amount, not a drop more!!!!!
    I have a "test engine" for lack of honesty...meaning I have a chipper shredder with 2 year old gas with stabil, and it start first pull every time.

    I use it in every thing I have with an internal combustion engine, two or four stroke.
    Nothing I have tried works better for preserving gas when used as directed, not even sea foam. (which has awesome merits all it's own)

    Sea foam? Now that's giving me some weird mental visualizations.

    It's called that 'cause it was originally for outboards.

    Personally I prefer Berryman's B-12 Chemtool for carb cleaner, stabil for long term storage.
