I know there are lots of articles about this, but I haven't seen these questions come up....
I have heard I can use Seafoam as a fuel stabilizer, my question is how much should I use? I figure sometime later this month I should start adding it to my fuel and running it in my boat, so that when the weather does turn too cold, it's ready to go.
Being as it's a fishing boat, I'll likely take it out, well into the fall and around here there are Octobers where it is suddenly too cold to go out, or it could be November and possibly into December before it's too cold. I'd like to be able to take the boat out as long as possible, but be prepared, when I can't any longer. By February, there are times, I could be back on the ater, but it could also, easily be March.
Also, what about fogging for my situation. I'm guessing that will be hard on the plugs, when it's time to start it back up, what does everyone do? (i.e., if I fog it then take it back out, what is the procedure?) Put some old plugs in, run it, and then install the good ones?
Also, I read some newer motors have holes drilled in the carb cover so that you can easily fog a motor, is there a reason, not to drill a hole in the cover for each of my carbs? If done, they would only be big enough for the "straw" of the spray can.
Oh yeah, what about my hull drains? Ranger has floor drains in several places in the boat, as well as the livewells. Should I pour some RV Antifreeze in all of these and then tilt the boat up as high as possible to let it run out or should they be ok?
