Using the correct grade of fuel helps to ensure optimum performance, economy and reliability from your engine. It is important to follow the recommendations for your model engine as outlined in your operation and maintenance handbook.  Incorrect fuel can damage your engine or affect performance.

Using fuel that is below the minimum recommended octane may reduce engine life.

Fuel that contains ethanol is not recommended in a marine environment as ethanol is hygroscopic and will mix more readily with water than with petrol.


Petrol has a limited shelf life.  If storing petrol it should be in a dry air tight container, the use of Quicksilver Quickstor will extend the shelf life to 1 year by preventing oxidization, preventing fuel system corrosion, and preventing gum and varnish from forming and settling in the fuel lines, tanks, carburetors or injectors.
