I just used Lucas gas treatment and drove 1150 miles after the motorhome has sat for awhile, it was started every week but not driven much. I feel Lucas and a quality gas will do the trick. I looked at seafoam and decided to go with what I've used before.

X 2, I also use Lucas Gas treatment and either a mid-grade gas or Premium Grade. I also don't go to the cheapish gas stations, either a BP or Shell. I never let the tanks get below 1/2 full. I know they say it makes no difference but I dis-agree. I get better performance and it just runs better. While driving or leaving a wayside rest stop I hold her to the floor (if and when its safe to do so) and the crap comes shooting out black smoke.
I do this a couple times a season
JMO, Tim

I use Seafoam in all my gas engines. I would never again use Stabil. It gummed up the tank in my 1929 Ford Model A. Had a hell of a time cleaning it up.

Seafoam for gas engines and AmsOil fuel additive for diesel engines is all I use.

What ever you use carry a spare fuel filter for the engine and generator. After sitting for a year never know what gunk will break loose.

Texaco is owned by Chevron, they both have Techron in the gas.

I use a quart of 2 stroke oil per tank. Of course its a diesel.
I wouldn't try it for a gas engine.
