Here's the MSDS data on the product STABIL -fuel additive. The main ingredient is petroleum distillates (mineral spirits) about 95%. Also, the reply I received from the parent company, Gold Eagle, is below...
Dear Tim Daley,
Thank you for your questions regarding STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer . STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer is a petroleum distillate based formulation with many proprietary ingredients making up the additive mixture of active ingredients. The proprietary additive mixture includes anti-oxidant, detergent, and anti-corrosion additives. Please see the MSDS attached. These active ingredients in STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer have the following benefits:
STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer will keep fuel fresh for up to 12 months, guaranteed.
STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer prevents the formation of gums and varnish that can clog fuel injectors, and actually contains a fuel injector cleaner to further improve your engine's performance.
STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer works equally well for both 2-cycle (gas and oil mixture) and 4-cycle engines. STA-BIL(r) brand can be used in engines with any number of cylinders.
Depending on the quality, type and source of the gasoline, as well as storage conditions, doubling the dosage rate of STA-BIL(r) brand could prolong this storage time to up to 2 years. STA-BIL(r) Fuel Stabilizer is designed for use during STORAGE of any gasoline equipment or vehicle stored for 30 days or more, or used infrequently. It will keep gas fresh for 12 months, and help prevent corrosion, and gum and varnish formation. It is effective in all gasolines, including Ethanol blends, including E-85.
The STA-BIL(r) formula was also improved over a year ago to include additional corrosion protection to protect against the damaging effects experienced when using Ethanol blended fuels. The best way to protect your fuel system from Ethanol blended fuels related issues year-round (not just during storage), we recommend using new STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment. For Marine engines, such as a boat or jet-ski, we recommend Marine Formula STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment which has been specifically formulated for the extra severe conditions faced by these engines.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
