CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - Gold Eagle Co., makers of America's #1 selling brand of fuel stabilizers and ethanol treatments, STA-BIL®, is today unveiling an innovative new product called STA-BIL® 360° Protection Ethanol Treatment and Fuel Stabilizer ("STA-BIL 360°"). Designed to combat the corrosive properties of today's ethanol-blended fuels, STA-BIL 360° is the first ethanol treatment to deliver comprehensive corrosion protection above and below the fuel line through revolutionary, new chemistry.
"We're proud to introduce STA-BIL 360°'s comprehensive corrosion protection formula to the marketplace for the very first time, offering an entirely new way to protect the fuel system," said Marc Blackman, president and CEO of Gold Eagle Co. "STA-BIL 360° builds off STA-BIL's strong brand reputation and category leader position to deliver an innovative, unmatched product that we believe is a game-changer in the fuel additives category."
To meet the demands of consumers seeking ultimate performance, STA-BIL scientists developed this innovative product to deliver comprehensive corrosion protection. When added to fuel, STA-BIL 360° releases a vapor inside the fuel system that coats all metal parts including the fuel tank, fuel sending unit, valves, carburetor, fuel injectors and intake manifold. Offering 360 corrosion protection, STA-BIL 360° is safe and recommended for use in all types of gasoline from ethanol-free fuel to E85 blends.
"We designed STA-BIL 360° for our most discerning customers seeking the utmost level of protection for their investments from classic automobiles to vintage motorcycles collectors," said Tom Bingham, director of marketing for Gold Eagle Co. "There are thousands of classic vehicle owners today, who are keen on practicing proper fuel management and understand the financial repercussions of corrosion. With the introduction of STA-BIL 360°, we're able to offer customers a dynamic selection of premium and trusted fuel stabilizers and ethanol treatments for their every need."
Delivering ultimate year-round protection, STA-BIL 360° is recommended for use at every fill-up in all gasoline engines. Available in 12 ounce bottles, STA-BIL 360° treats up to 60 gallons of gasoline and will retail for approximately $25.99.
