Winter Fuel Management
Unlike traditional chemical-based stabilizers, Star Tron uses enzymes – reactants - that continue working until the fuel is consumed in the combustion chamber. Some traditional stabilizers may somewhat decrease fuel combustibility, causing engines to run a bit balky and smoky when they are put back in service in the spring. Star Tron's enzymes allow more oxygen to attach to hydrocarbon molecules, resulting in a more complete burn of the fuel charge, and as a result, ensure maximum power, improved fuel economy, prevention of deposits and decreased emissions.
Debris is another issue; Star Tron's enzymes help prevent the formation of gums and varnish while the fuel is in storage. Star Tron breaks apart gum, varnish, carbon and other debris into tiny particles so that it can be eliminated during normal operation. Because Star Tron's enzymes are in a fuel suspension, it cannot be overdosed or in any other way cause harm to engines or fuel delivery systems.
While E10 fuel can hold some amount of water, excessive amounts can lead to phase separation. Water and ethanol form a very tight bond; if water levels exceed .5% by volume, the water and ethanol mixture drops to the bottom of the fuel tank, forming a distinct layer under the gasoline. Alcohol is an emulsifier that "clumps" water molecules together, creating larger concentrations that degrade fuel quality. Star Tron's enzymes are de-emulsifiers, actively breaking apart clusters of water molecules so that they can be widely dispersed throughout the fuel. When these submicron-sized water particles are drawn into the fuel delivery system, they can be safely eliminated in the combustion process, instead of leading to carbon deposits as is the case with large clumps of emulsified water.
By treating your fuel with Star Tron for winter layup, your bike - and all other gas-powered gear - will be ready to go in the spring.
