Stabil

7 posts in this topic

Hi- Getting ready to winterize the boat. Have some Stabil but not sure how old it is and there is no date on the bottle. Does it go bad?

I replace it when/if it gets flakes of stuff in it. Remember, if you use Stabil use it with fresh gas. Adding Stabil to old gas doesn't work.

On the back of my bottle of Stabil it says it's good for two years.

If you think you've had it longer than that, a new bottle is only a few bucks...I'd splurge and buy some new stuff grin.gif

I bought a boat a few months back. The owner didn't use any stabilizer in the fuel and it sat all last winter. Now I have been trying to get the motor running good again. With all time time and effort I put into it, it's a lot easier and cheaper buying a bottle of stabil then what I'm having to go through.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
