E-10 Fuel Additives that Fight Corrosion
Three additives stand out in the battle against deposits in new gasoline blends.
Practical Sailors original goal with this evaluation was to run a long-term test of fuel additives. Instead of adding heat or oxygen or excessive corrosive materials, we would substitute time. After six months of testing additives in E-10 gasoline, we found no measurable corrosion, so we elected to add a small amount of seawater and compare fuel samples after one month. The results were surprising to even our testers. The additives we tested were: Hammonds Biobor Ethanol Buster, CRCs Phase Guard 4, Mercury Marines Quickstor, PRI-G, Sea Foam Engine Treatment, Sta-bil Ethanol, Star Tron Ethanol, and ValvTect Ethanol.
