The Best Solution for Ethanol Problems

Although most marine engines are designed to operate on a 10% ethanol blend (E10), ethanol can still cause some serious problems, such as phase separation, octane loss, accelerated fuel destabilization, excessive deposits (gunk) and corrosion of the fuel system.

To help boaters enjoy trouble-free boating when using ethanol blended gasoline, ValvTect Petroleum developed ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment. It is formulated to help prevent all the problems caused by ethanol blended E10 gasoline; except deterioration of older fiberglass tanks, which cannot be prevented by a fuel additive. Also note that once an ethanol gasoline blend is "phase separated" it cannot be corrected and must be pumped out and safely discarded.

ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment has been proven in independent laboratory tests to help solve the four ethanol problems: phase separation, corrosion, build-up of carbon deposits (gunk) and fuel destabilization.

For boat owners who purchase their gasoline at fuel docks, ValvTect Marine Gasoline, which is only available at Certified ValvTect Marinas, contains ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment to provide the same protection as the aftermarket treatment.

Unlike some fuel additives, ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment is formulated with the petroleum industry's most advanced fuel additive technology that is approved and used by gasoline refiners and engine manufacturers.

ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment is:

  • Test proven to help prevent entrained moisture and ethanol in the gasoline from dropping to the bottom of the fuel tank, where it can build up and eventually stall the engine. It also
  • Contains a corrosion inhibitor to help prevent the corrosive nature of the ethanol and moisture.
  • Contains a powerful gasoline detergent to prevent intake valve deposits (known as gunk) and clean-up fuel injector deposits. In the U.S. EPA Deposit Control Certification program ValvTect's detergent passed the tests using the required BMW and Chrysler engines.
  • Contains the industry's most effective fuel stabilizer that helps prevent oxidation and destabilization to improve the storage life of E10 or non-ethanol gasoline when sitting at the dock, on a trailer or when in storage for up to a year or more.

Boat owners should not fear using E10 ethanol gasoline. They must simply keep their fuel tanks filled as much as possible, not allow excess moisture to enter the system and treat their fuel with ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment or use ValvTect Marine Gasoline.

ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment is available at most leading marine supply dealers.
     08 oz. bottle treats 60 gallons of gasoline.
     12 oz. bottle treats 120 gallons of gasoline.
