Guys,
Please do not use stabil in your boats during the winter. Use seafoam. I just got my 20' Skeeter back with a 200hp yamaha HPDI that has been in the shop for over a month because the stabil and ethenol by-product stopped up all my filters and ruined my high pressure pump. After $2600.00 worth of damage i will never use the stuff again.


Never heard of this. Is it common? I run stabil all the time.

That's funny, my mechanic told me to use the stable everytime I fill up. I have a hpdi as well. Guess it depends on who you talk to about it. I have had mine for 3 yrs, and no problem so far.

Only time we've ever ran into that problem with stabil is when it wasn't measured properly and ran too heavy, or when the wrong formula of stabil was used. We've had guys use the red stabil which is for automotive purposes, instead of the blue stabil which is made for marine purposes and it caused major headaches with the motor and fuel pumps. We have a 30 yr master certified mercury tech and he strongly advises against seafoam in marine motors. All we use at work in our shop cans is blue stabil and mercury quikstore. Again, this is coming from mercury, so I'm not sure about yamaha's.
