According to Polaris, it is critical to treat the fuel used in vehicles that see limited or intermittent use (like many ATVs) with a fuel stabilizer and carbon clean.
“Polaris Fuel Stabilizer and Carbon Clean are designed and tested by the engineers at Polaris Industries to address the negative effects of today’s fuels as well as prevent fuel degradation in all Polaris vehicles,” Polaris says in a release.
Fuel Stabilizer- Ethanol-blended fuels such as E10 are more likely to contain water and can start to go bad as soon as they enter your fuel tank. With vehicles that see limited or intermittent use the moisture content in fuel can surpass the fuel’s ability to hold the water. When this happens, water will separate and pool in the lowest parts of the fuel system resulting in problems such as hard starting, no starting and corrosion. Polaris Fuel Stabilizer addresses the negative aspects of this process known as phase separation. In short, Polaris says using its Fuel Stabilizer is an inexpensive way to protect your Polaris vehicles.
Carbon Clean- Polaris Carbon Clean is a complete fuel treatment and fuel system cleaner combination. It treats fuel for storage or for vehicles that see intermittent use and removes moisture from fuel. It is designed to address today’s modern Ethanol-blended fuels that tend to absorb moisture easier than non-blended fuels. Polaris Carbon Clean is also designed to cleans valves, sticky rings and carbon deposits. It contains dispersants that are engineered to break down carbon molecules that build up on internal engine parts and allow them to be burned in the engine and expelled through the exhaust.
Polaris Fuel Stabilizer and Carbon Clean are available at all Polaris dealerships. For more information visit www.purepolarisoil.com.
