Thought you all might like this information. In the East Yard (PPM) we have a 5 year old travel lift. The fuel tank has clear lens (eye) for sighting the level of fuel.
Over the years these sight glass have become cloudy and hard to see the fuel. Last year I started using Startron in our fuels.. Gas and diesel.. Within 6 months the sight glass have now become clear again. Seems to reduce smoke from the Cummins engine as well.
I purchased a 1989 Grady White Offshore 24 with a 2 stoke 225 HP Yamaha Excel. The boat was on the hard for maybe 2 years with full fuel tanks. I suspect the owner only ran off the main 95 gallon tank, and saved the 55 aux. tank for emergancy. Needless to say, I was lazy and just dropped her in and started using it. The (3) carbs got gummed up. The motor simply wouldn't idle and ran poorley at speed. Another Grady white owner turned me on to STAR TRON. 20 bucks, got nothing to loose. Within 1 hour, the boat was ideling (sort of) and ran much better. After 3 hours, the motor not only idled, bit 200 RPM faster and instead of being on plane @ 4000rpm, I was able to plane off @ 3400. I will continue to use upon fueling. I'm sure I would have had to rebuild 3 carbs, have the tanks cleaned for better than $1000.00. I can't say enough about this product. I'm going to purchase the diesel product for my diesel applications including vehicles, both at home and at the shop. Thank you STAR TRON!!!
I first heard about this product in the motorcycle dealer expo in Indy. I got a bottle and poured it in my Gs 500. I noticed a difference right away in sound and it also raised the idle 200 rpm. It also got rid of a lean spot right after idle. I put it in everything I own. Great product! I run it in everything!
I am a firm believer in your product. I first used it at Thanksgiving of 09. Mixed 2 oz to 3 gallons of 10% fuel. Then did 1 gal of 40: 1 for my Stihl blower and trimmer. Noticed the blower working better (more force) immediately on wet leaves. I went through 3 tanks of fuel on my 14 year old 4.5 hp Briggs powered push mower. By the third tank I noticed much less hesitation, especially when I hit heavy patches of grass. I also noticed that I was mowing more area before refueling. But the kicker was last Saturday (3/20/10) when I pulled the mower out, hit the primer bulb 5 times and it started on the first pull after being stored in my shed through the coldest, wettest winter Virginia has seen in years. This mower has NEVER started on the first pull. From now on it's StarTron all the way.
I have been using Startron fuel treatment for months now and just can't believe how good my outboard motors are runnning. Used to be if I didn't run the motors every two weeks I had to have the carbs cleaned. Now with the Startron additive all my problems have gone away. It has to be the very best product I have used since owning a boat. Thank you Startron!

I am so glad to see you become a part of BassBoatCentral.com I have been using your product for the last 3 years and I am nothing short of amazed. I have gotten all my buddies using your product for one simple reason. This stuff really works. I mean it doesn;t just work in my outboard motor but it does wonders in my lawn mower, four wheeler and even my chain saw. I have had two buddies that have had to have thier outboard motors worked on becuse of the effects of ethonol. And now both of them use StarTron each time they fill up and each time they store their boats. No problems. Thank you for making such a great product. To tell you how much I believe in your product, I have gone to Wal-Mart and bought a bunch of bottles of StarTron to give away at tournaments as door prizes! Thanks again. Great Product!!! And one that truly does work. JOHN DUBOIS
I own a 2005 Yamaha Road Star. In 2008 I went on a road trip to N. Ga. One day it got up to 105 deg. Not knowing what ethanol or alcohol did to gas, it made no difference to me until my engine got so hot the carburetor overflowed and my engine quit. I inquired about it and found out that alcohol in gas lowers the boiling point, and the fuel dumping on the motor could have set the bike on fire just from the heat of the motor. I went on another trip this year and found Star Tron at a local bike shop in Dothan Ala. I tried it. Went to Burmingham and back to Dothan, both days were 100 deg. I noticed that my gas mileage had increased by at least 2mpg by using this product. I bought another bottle and proceded with my trip. 6000 miles later my gas mileage increased again. In Fla. before using Star Tron I was getting aprox 43mpg. After using Star Tron for those 6000 miles my gas mileage is aprox. 47mpg. Starting was easier and less taxing on the starter. Engine performance was smoother also. I have recomended this product to all I know who have bikes with carburetors. It's amazing that it could do so much for the bike. It is a pleasure to ride again without the worry of the bike catching fire. I will continue to use it till my bike falls apart.
My wife was injured in 3 seperate accidents in the last 4 years, so we have used our boat only about 2 or 3 times each year. During that time, once a year, I added your Star Tron product at the storage rate of 1 oz to every 8 gallons of gas we had in the boat, plus I added 8 gallons of high test to keep the octane level up. Once a year I also changed our 10 micron filter. Each time I dumped it out, there was no sign of water or particles in the fuel.
In July this year, when we finally got our engines professionally tuned, the Yahmaha mechanic said the fuel (Much of which is now 4 years old) was the "cleanest fuel he's seen in a long time." During the prolonged time we stored the fuel there was absolutely no phase separation from the ethanol due to the fine Star Tron product you produce! I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate having a formula which protects our boat from the damage and expense that the new fuels can cause.
I’ve got a 2001 Kawasaki Concours but I haven’t had my bike on the road for over a year (thanks to someone who ran a stop sign in 2008 but that’s another story). Needless to say, even with (another brand of) fuel stabilizer in the tank and, later, fresh gas, the engine was running poorly. I couldn’t put the bike in gear without the engine stalling. I heard about your product via an online ad and I took a look at your site. After reading the testimonials, I was admittedly skeptical. I searched for additional reviews and found them to be overwhelmingly positive so I decided to give Star Tron a try. I put some treated gas in the tank and after 15-20 minutes of idling, I tried putting the bike in gear and the engine didn’t stall. I went out for a short ride and the while the engine ran, it seemed underpowered and struggled to get going from a dead stop. The next day I went out for a longer ride (about 2 hours). By the end of the ride, the engine was purring beautifully. Any hesitation I was experiencing in 1st gear was completely gone and the response was great throughout the power band. The engine is running better now than when it was after I had the carbs professionally cleaned back in 2007. Long story short, I’m a believer. I was hoping for fair to decent results after two or three tanks of gas. I got great results after just ½ of a tank of gas. I couldn’t be more impressed. Thanks for such a great product!
I noticed this new stuff called Star Tron in my local Meijer store and started reading the label. What got my attention was that it contains enzymes. Being familiar with Ethanol 'brewing' processes and knowing some of the fantastic things enzymes are capable of, so I decided to give it a try. I mixed some in the tank of one particular lawn mower that was always very hard to start, even after repeated carburetor cleanings and other gas additives (Sta-Bil). After forgetting about it for a few days, I went to use it and the results were nothing less than spectacular. Not only did the hard starting problem disappear, but the surging problem was also gone. It must have got inside the tiny passages in the carburetor that I was unable to clean. After trying it in other engines with similar results, I now use it in just about everything. My annual 5 gallon tank of gas for yard equipment goes strong for the whole season. There's no such thing as an engine fix-all in a bottle, but if the problems are from bad gas, gum, and varnish, Star Tron sure comes close. I'm not too impressed with many new products, but the performance of Star Tron speaks for itself. It's like a carburetor cleaning in a bottle. If I had 3 thumbs to put up, they would be for Star Tron.
I first heard of Star Tron at a web site (Mytractorforum). I have an older Bolens tractors,a Green Machine trimmer and a Homelite chainsaw. I have been running treated gasoline in all of these engines. When I first used treated gass in the tractors I noticed some black soot when the engine was under load, but it cleared up when running the second tank of gas. The trimmer did not show the soot but did run much better with the treated gas mix. The chainsaw starts much easier even if it sits for a long time. As a hobby, I repair small engines on lawn mowers, trimmers, and chainsaws. I always put in some treated gas when repairing them. They start much better after running for a short while. I am also putting the Star Tron in the gas for our 55 Yahama outboard engine on a 24 foot pontoon. It runs much better and a lot cleaner.
