    Old Gas

    I don't know if you want to use seafoam though...if you read what the contents are, there is alcohol in it. That's pretty much the same thing as putting ethanol fuel in to your tank. i would advise against it, and use the additives made by Star Brite.

    Old Gas

    I had a 50 gallon tank that was half-full with gas that was 5 years old. I bought a electric fuel pump to pump out the fuel into a 50 gallon drum, and posted it on Craigslist as free. A guy responded saying he wanted it, and I gave it to him. he said he was going to use it in his weedwhacker or...

    Maui Fishing Charters

    Don't think that we're all like that. Everybody has their fair share of rotten eggs, this one just happened to be a bit more vocal than most. Most islanders are very friendly and helpful as you can see by reading all the other posts. True, cost of living in Hawaii is expensive, but hey, it's...

    BOAT OWNERS BEWARE

    Gotta watch out! All these fucking crackheads will steal all your shit without even thinking! They broke into my parents house, took all my gold reels, my Furuno fishfinder, my Garmin GPS, (I keep EVERYTHING) in the house. A year later, the fuckers broke in again, but this time, there was an...

    Pitted Stainless.......

    Home Depot sells it too. I think both Bar Keepers Friend and Flitz work really well.

    Yes, I used additives. Namely the Seabrite for ethanol gas.

    Red gel in fuel tank

    Thanks to everyone for their input! Yeah, the tank is kind of old, but I think it's still good. There is and access hole if I remove the sending unit for my fuel gauge (that I never look at). I'll probably remove it and just flush it out. Hoses are all copper or hard lines. Just one short...

    Red gel in fuel tank

    It's an aluminum tank. Now I'm thinking that I gotta do what I didn't want to have to do and that is to open up the floor and remove the tank to flush it out. Just not sure what to use to flush it with. Water?

    Red gel in fuel tank

    Ok. Got all the old gas out of my tank,then tried to flush by putting fresh gas into the tank. Now I have some thick red gel coming out and it plugged up my fuel line. Any ideas on how to clean this shit up? Hooked up an external electric fuel pump to pull out the old gas so I wouldn't f..k up...

    Very old fuel

    Called PCS and was told that they use Unitek so I should call Unitek directly, so that's what I did. Unitek told me that disposal fees for old gasoline are: $1.35/gallon + a $20 HAZMAT dluid testing fee + a $48 pick-up charge. Sounds like they are the best way to deal with old gas...
