Fuel Stabilizer

Fuel prices here in Virginia have gone up thirty cents in the past week. I have also been hearing that its going to be five dollars a gallon by summer. I've been thinking about filling a couple of fifty five gallon drums up while the prices are lower. Do I need to add any type of fuel stabilizer and if so what kind. Maybe I'm being paranoid but just try to look ahead a little bit.

I feel your pain brother. I know here in the NW our diesel has gone to 3.90 a gallon. .70 in the last 10 months its crazy.

I would look into Stabil fuel stabilizer, i cant recall if it works for diesel but id expect it does as what it mainly does is keep water out and the fuel fresh. I use it in my boat. It has a 40 gal tank in it i fill it up in Oct and add the stabil then it sits will April when we start our season again the boat fires right up the first crank and runs great.

I think your biggest concern should be algae forming inside the tank.

Staibil has a diesel stabilizer. Diesel kleen "white" is good. I think that if you put a good amount of that stuff, both or one, you should be good.
