Default Old outboard motor...fuel

Like me, all my equipment is getting old. For the last few years the old Evinrude 9.9 (1976 model) just wouldn't run like it used to. Idle was a little rough, not quite the power it used to have. I never gave the fuel I used a second thought beyond making sure the mix was correct and the gas was fresh...just figured she was getting old and wearing out.
PROBLEM SOLVED! On recommendation from some smarter than me people I bought and I am now using non-ethanol fuel. The old girl is running much better.

Might be considered snake oil by some but ever since I started running sea foam and ethanol free gas every piece of gas powered equipment I run starts and runs just fine after coming out of storage.


P. S. I also properly winterize everything before storing so thatís probably a big part of it too.

A couple weeks ago on our return camping trip I stopped in Heber and filled the toyhauler fuel station with 40gal of pure ethanol free 91 octane. Should last me quite a while (I hope). Hard to get 91 octane blue gas in the valley.

Oh sorry, should have mentioned it: Silver Eagle

This site is convenient to find stations with good gas:
