I like to use a fuel stabilizer in all my machines that is also an upper cylinder lubricant with fuel efficientcy boost, ie. cetane boost for my diesel. I also mix an anti-gel in the diesels, and having the bulk tanks makes treating your fuel very easy indeed. I also get to fuel up all my stuff at home, and mix the 2 stroke stuff while I talk to my little girls. Parking is always easy, and no fighting for pumps or waiting for the only diesel pump at the station either.
They are worth it to me, not in money savings, but for convinience.
Can't agree more. I've had my tanks for over 20 yrs now and would never go back to the station to have to fill up. And yes the savings can be substantial if your running diesel machines, over 50 cents a gallon cheaper for off road use
