I generally continue to use Sta-Bil every winter. It's available everywhere and I can't see going out of my way or paying more for a different stabilizer that may only have slight benefit. I'm certainly seeing an awful lot of bad reviews for SeaFoam as of late.

I like Sta-bil Marine, has higher concentration.

Seafoam has always been snake-oil. It contains alcohols: isopropanol and methanol. Those love to attract water, which is probably why it failed the rust/corrosion tests so badly.

Regular Sta-Bil for me.

Never had a problem, but I also use non-ethanol fuel most of the time. I've used some pretty old gas that has Sta-Bil in it and it worked just fine.

Not a fan of Seafoam for stabilizing or cleaning (I'm a Techron fan).

Youtube's FortNine has made a nice video on the subject of fuel stabilizers:
I subscribe to FortNine YT channel, excellent channel.
And I also bought STA-BIL at packing of 8FL OZ (236ml). According to the recommended ratio of 30ml to 9.5L, I calculated for 13L (a full fuel tank) 41ml of STA-BIL red liquid. OPsss...I accidentally put in 170ml. Now I have to run the engine for five minutes...the motorcycle should be in "storage" for six months or more.

I try to time my last ride of the season(greater Toronto area) before winter sets in, by using up the ethanol gas, and putting in a full tank of Shell premium "no ethanol". Then there is inevitably another week of nice riding weather and I rue the extra $3 I spent on the premium gas fill-up. Sometimes I'm penny unwise, pound stupid.
