He said his local BMW dealership introduced him to Star Tron.
"BMW fuel injection pumps were dying at an alarming rate if left to sit in old gas for more than 90 days, so the Beemer boys did their online homework and ordered a case of Star Tron....Now all the big automotive chain stores hav it on the shelf, including WalMart."

He says Star Tron has naturally occurring enzymes that can stabilize fuel for 2 years. It is a fuel and can't overdose your tank. Helps handle ethanol.

I just put some Stabil in my bikes. I don't know if this is a subliminal advertisement or if the stuff is any good.

Has anyone had luck with this stuff?
That tech guy who writes for Rider is a blithering boob. EVERY MONTH he gives shitfull advice based on less motorcycle knowledge than the average lawnmower mechanic. Sta-Bil works fine and does not foul plugs. I've stored stuff two years, starts right up like I shut it down last week. Startron is fine, but not the magic eliexer that the hucksters claim. It's fuel stabilizer.
Too much is just barely enough.....
