Can anyone recommend what fuel line antifreeze to use in 1996-1997 era sleds? Last year the fuel pump in my 97 Indy trail crapped out and I want to be sure to not use anything in the fuel that may degrade the diaphragm in the fuel pump. Comments? THanks.

To be honest, in 16 years of riding I've never used any kind of additive in my fuels to keep it from freezing. And I've never had a problem.

Maybe it's because I siphon all the old stuff out every year and put fresh in? Thereby keeping the build up of water down?

I agree with this.

But if you live in a state where Ethanol is required in fuel, you should not need anything, as the alcohol is already there.

I generally through in a bottle of Iso and an oz or 2 of Po Carb Cleaner into every tank. Don't get freeze-up and the carbs stay cleeaann.

I use it when temps are around 0f or colder. I have seen guys burn sleds down becasue the jets get semi frooze. It usually happens inbetween busy weekends up north. I use the red bottled heet. Or the penray stuff from the store. I don't use it all the time but usually every other day.
