    Default Carb cleaner - Fuel additives question?

    There are lots of products out there that you can add to your fuel. Some are for carb cleaner/fule injector cleaner, others are for deposits and others for octane boosting.

    Do you guys use any of these products in yoru jet skis? DO you think the carb cleaner will help keep your carberators in good workign condition if you use the product frequently?

    In a word, no. Use Stabil or another good brand of fuel stabilizer to help keep your fuel from breaking down.

    I used carb cleaner in my gas a few times last year ... it didn't seem to make any difference in my engine. When I rebuilt my carbs they were still pretty bad.

    Using those FOUR STROKE additives in your ski only damages the engine. The only way to clean a carb is with a rebuild kit and labor.
