PREPARING THE FUEL SYSTEM OF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS
IMPORTANT FOR SUCCESSFUL STORAGE DURING THE
WINTER.  
EXPERTS NOW BELIEVE THAT IT IS BEST TO FILL THE TANK WITH
GAS THAT HAS BEEN TREATED WITH STABILIZER/ETHANOL
TREATMENT LETTING THE ENGINE RUN FOR ABOUT
10 MINUTES
SO THAT THE TREATED FUEL TRAVELS THROUGH THE WHOLE
FUEL SYSTEM.  THIS KEEPS YOUR GAS FRESH AND HELPS TO
PREVENT THE BUILD UP OF DEPOSITS.  THE FULL TANK KEEPS
CONDENSATION FROM HAPPENING.  
JUST ASK REX IF YOU HAVE
ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROPER STORAGE OF YOUR
EQUIPMENT!
Have a machine that’s hard to start?  Never had this problem before?  
This might be due to the damaging effects of the ethanol-
based gasoline found at all of the pumps today.

                              
 HELPFUL HINTS
                 For Preventative Fuel Maintenance:

*Use a good fuel additive-one that is alcohol-free.
*Choose one that says on the package that it deals with ethanol problems.
*Use the additive every time you fill-up your gas can.
*This fuel additive should be used during all seasons and under all   
conditions.

Fuel stabilizer/treatment can be used in your everyday vehicle and is a
MUST for your small, gas-powered equipment!
