    My car sits months at a time. 93 pure gas has been around till recently and all I can get is 90. My question is weather 90 pure gas with octane boost and stabil is better than 93 ethanol gas with stabil.

    Stabil hurts the octane rating. Is canned gas from a race fuel company an option.

    I've had mine sit for 3 months without even being started, yes that was once and an extreme, however it's sat for 4-8 weeks a few times. never an issue.

    Yea I could pick up some race gas possibly but that would be 30 miles out. When I say sits for long periods I mean I drive it once a year. Car only has 7800 miles on it. Always kept 93 in it but now that I cant get 93 I wasn't sure what was best fuel treatment these days.

    I use the Lucas E85 stabilizer with a full tank of E85 over the winter storage with no issues.

    There is no product that can prevent phase separation in fuel with alcohol added. If you can store with non alcohol enhanced fuel I would do it.

    Ok. I put 90 in it. Maybe I can just run octane boost and it will be all good.
