Nearly impossible to find in SoCal

Easy to find in Washington. Never a drop in my new Parker.
CA needs to get you guys E free at the docks.
We only use E10 in CA - no other option
That's crazy....I wont put a drip of ethanol in my boat. Kind of hard to find around here but 1 to 2 pumps in each city it seems.
Why leave your tanks empty. Use the boat year round here in southern Cali. I’m always putting gas in the beast
Half a tank for me, I use my boat 3 times per month usually or as work permits
My gas doesn't get to sit more than 2 to 3 weeks but I still use ring free.
Handy website when searching for efree fuel.
I also always have my boat full...never know when you gotta go or get a special call or even have to go the extra mile.
im old school.....full with sta-bil marine every time. no problems since i implemented this.
I fill the boat and add stabilizer run it for about 10 minutes before I pull it out of the water for the season. When I put it back in the water 6 months later it runs like I ran it the day before.
170 gallon tank and I keep 120-130 in it all the time. Boat is garaged. Been doing it this way for 8 years. Boat will sit anywhere from 3-6 months at times. I always use ring-free but no stabilizer. Never had any problem with it.
I've also never seen a drop of water in the fuel when servicing the filters. None in the F150 engine filters and none in the fuel/water separating filters. I should add that I never buy fuel on the water, only at gas stations and only Chevron 89 fuel. So this only applies to trailer boaters.
I leave it empty sometimes and full others, depending on busy schedule...To me, it is more important to change the gas/water filters every 50 hours to ensure no water gets to the engine, than whether the gas gets old....but, logic says fresh is always preferable to old (fishing line, steaks, girls, wives, etc.).......
