Starbrite is one of the biggest names in the boating industry, distributing a plethora of marine maintenance chemicals like hull and bottom cleaners, sealants, boat soap, waxes and polishes, metal care items, bilge cleaners and more. But one of their most popular products that has stood the test of time is Star Tron, their enzyme based gasoline treatment. That clear blue bottle can be found everywhere from hardware and automotive stores, to marine retailers, boat dealers and tackle shops.
With the numerous fuel-related issues that many boaters experience since the introduction of E-10 ethanol fuels in their marketplace, a demand for items like Star Tron and competitive products was created and has stayed strong since day one. When moisture is introduced into the E-10 fuel, it causes dreaded phase separation that puts a witch’s brew of water and alcohol on the bottom and detuned petrol on top and that formula is definitely no bueno for your outboard. Enter Star Tron to save the day.Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is a multifunctional fuel additive which uses a unique enzyme technology that allows all engines to start easily and run smoothly, even when using ethanol-blended fuel or after sitting idle for months. It eliminates and prevents ethanol fuel problems by breaking down excess water and sludge to sub-micron size, allowing it to be safely burned away during normal engine operation, helping to prevent phase separation. Star Tron also increases fuel economy by cleaning the entire fuel delivery system, removing performance robbing gum and varnish deposits while modifying how fuel burns. This results in more complete and uniform combustion, maximum performance, increased fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and reliable operation. Star Tron will stabilize fuel for up to 2 years, preventing the formation of gums and other solids that clog carburetors and fuel injectors.
Star Tron is safe for all internal combustion engines and overdosing is not harmful to the internals. Star Tron is offered in a trio of flavors, including the original #143 Small Engine Formula (each ounce treats up to 6 gallons of fuel); the #930 Concentrate Formula (each ounce treats up to 16 gallons of fuel); and the #14501 Super Concentrate 1-ounce Single Dose Shooter (treats up to 25 gallons of fuel).
