I use Gumout in the first tank after storage on all my recreational vehicles. Of course, I also use Stabil before storage.

Hey guys shouldnt use any carburator cleaners in a two stroke. It strips the oil away from the crank and bottom end. I know from experience, I used carb cleaner in my sea doo, and the connecting rod bearing went 2 days later. Its better to take the carb apart and clean it that way.

There is a cleaner aditive to add to 2 strokes that work real good SEA FOAM. It cleans stabilizes and helps keep the oil mixed it does not deter the oils job. IT also is great in 4 strokes (has a little octane boost ).I use it in diesels to help keep the gel factor down in the winter and keep the injectors clean.
