Store Equipment With Confidence

AMSOIL keeps your stored equipment fresh for our Omaha spring.

storage-in-a-fall

Fall is the time to think about getting summer equipment put away before winter hits. Preventive maintenance is critical before storing equipment for any extended period of time. Properly storing equipment through the cold winter months protects the engine, prevents rust and prepares it for action when spring rolls back around. With the right lubrication and use of fuel additives, you’re on the right track to preventing major headaches next spring.

Fight Corrosion and Dry Starts

During long periods of storage, inconsistent ambient temperatures can cause condensation to form within the engines of two- and four-stroke recreational vehicles, handheld power equipment, construction and farm equipment and other equipment used seasonally or infrequently. When the condensate comes in contact with steel and iron components, surface corrosion can form, leaving cylinder liners, piston rings, anti-friction bearings and other contact surfaces laden with rust. Internal corrosion and rust can flake, leading to increased engine deposits, wear and friction, and cause the engine to run hotter and less efficiently, effectively reducing equipment life and increasing maintenance time and costs. Long periods of storage can also dry out cylinders. Dry-starting an engine often results in permanent damage and can dramatically shorten the life of the equipment.

While most two- and four-stroke motor oils are formulated to protect against internal corrosion and dry starts, their effectiveness fades over time. AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil (FOG) is an excellent solution for long-term protection against corrosion and damage from dry starts. AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil’s aerosol spray formulation thoroughly and evenly coats internal components to protect against corrosion and prolong engine life.

Fight Deposits, Gumming and Varnish

Ethanol and other harmful contaminants commonly found in fuel can wreak havoc on a stored engine. Most fuels are pre-treated with the lowest additive concentration (LAC) level of additives, which allow them to be stored for a short period before degrading. During storage, however, degraded fuel can interact with air and moisture to form gums, varnish and deposits throughout the fuel system. These impurities can gum floats; clog injectors, fuel lines and carburetors; and cause poor engine performance and starting problems. Adding AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer (AST) to fuel before long-term storage can help prevent harmful deposits from forming in the tank and fuel system, eliminating the need to clean or replace carburetors after long-term storage. For short-term storage, AMSOIL Quickshot® (AQS) should be used.

Applications

AMSOIL Gasoline Stabilizer and AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil applications include, but are not limited to, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, outboard motors, stern-drive and inboard marine engines, personal watercraft, lawn equipment, chainsaws, snowblowers, portable generators, handheld power equipment, motor scooters, powered farm equipment, powered construction equipment, cars and trucks.
