 Old gas is rough on 2-strokes.

 STP gas treatment if there's not too much.

 You shouldn't have a water problem with ethanol blended gas. You may have a phase separation problem if the gas wasn't treated with a stabilizer. Drain some into a jar and take a look at it. If it looks clear add some 93 octane to it or drain it all and run it in your truck.

 it's the kiss of death, pump in out and run in your car or truck. Old gas in 2 strokes is bad news.

 Run it in your truck; old gas kills 2 strokes.


   Is it stabilized? from StevieP  6/12/2012 7:21:51 PM
 Did you put Sta-Bil, SeaFoam, or StarTron in your fuel?


My 1999 225 OptiMax started with the VERY FIRST TWIST of the key this spring, on gas I put in last July. It's also started, and run fine through almost twenty gallons of that 'old' gas over the last few weeks.


Just Sunday I put fresh gas in for the first time, on the way home from NH where it was cheaper to buy. Added some Startron with it, and have full confidence.


I use one or more of the above in my fuel, and buy mostly from high-volume stations, and haven't had any problems.


If you didn't put anything in it, then you might do as the guys above me suggest. Although why you'd be willing to trash your truck engine over your boat engine, is beyond me. Are truck engines that much more forgiving?


If it was me, I'd probably just dilute the old gas with as much new (stabilized) gas as I could fit in the tank, and run it through.


YMMV.
