Benn - IMHO, and you seem to concur;*it appears Soltron is the best*GAS*or DIESEL*additive on the*market.* Inexpensive too.* It has done and continues to do really good things to my*Tollycraft's*gasoline, tanks' interiors, and entire fuel line... including the 4bbl carburetors.* Ive been using it for two years; actually I use it at 1/2 strength on most fill ups with an occasional full strength application - just to kick my Tolly's system the a..!* Haven't heard one bad thing about Soltron from other users... yet.* Except one yahoo that complained on another forum*about its*cost... get over it, please! LOL*- Art*

RE: Fuel polishing during layup periods.

I also have been using Soltron for years with good success. West Marine carries it as Startron now, under the Starbrite product line. Blue liquid, same stuff.

RE: Fuel polishing during layup periods.

Guys ,
One thing to remember is to occasionally change your product so that the bugs don't get resistant to your normal additive.
I do this about every 4 th fuel load.

Hey Benn - Confusing them bugs*with various additives sounds like good advice.* Hadn't thought of that one!* In addition to Soltron... can you recomend other brands you feel are*good to use??* Thanks, Art

Fuel polishing, off/on.* Also, time to fill up?* (Don't know about the "digital multicontrol" yet.)

You fuel tank gauge is a*Tank Tender by Hart Industries.* Their web site is:* http://www.thetanktender.com/

The gauges always read 0 unless you are "taking" a reading.* You will need to*calibrate each tank.

Oh, you are going to have some fun reading manuals and figuring out everything.

RE: Fuel polishing during layup periods.

PDL,

Pass down LOG , is a standard in the US NAVY.

It is a quick place to look up what ever is needed , right now!

While you are getting familiar with the new boat keep a log , of most everything you discover.

WRITE IT DOWN,

Sure you wont be selling the boat soon , or might not forget what you learn soon , but the time will come.

WRITE IT DOWN , and sometime when you need a simple task, put it in order.

Water in the bilge?

Engine stopped?

Dead starting batteries?

With a good PDL, when the bilge floods , the engine stops , and the anchor wont hold some night on a lee shore , the watch stander wont even have to wake you!!!
