This one won't get locked.   And there's already class action suits in ca due to the effect the fuel has in tanks in boats.

 In Florida too, or so I've read. If memory serves, they are not sueing because of what the fuel does to the tanks but the lack of warning when they started selling the fuel. Or something like that.  Huh?

I've used the caswell product...

I'd be glad to discuss it offline.

Back on subject. To discuss the additives, I've been using Star Tron every time I park the bike. I only need to use a cap full per tank if it's going to sit for more than a day, so it's not that expensive. If thr EU wil start using E-10 soon, then we'll probably see Acerbis forced to coat their tanks, since the European manufacturers will most likely put pressure on them.

For the time being, I only see 3 solutions:

1) Buy a none plastic tank
2) Use the additives
3) Coat the tanks

thanks for the input on Star Tron. I may give it a try until I am rid of the plastic tank.

Stabil also has a marine product for e10 which is more widely available.  I get it at advance auto.

Most Walmarts have the Startron.

It works to keep the fuel from causing running issues. No idea if it will keep the tanks from expanding.

Let me know if you want me to get you in touch with owners of either current gen SBK or SF, as a couple of guys I rode with down in Hawaii are going through this now.
