West Marine to carry Techron fuel treatment

Publish date:

West Marine said it now carries Techron Marine Fuel System Treatment. The additive is available on the West Marine website and will be in retail stores in April.

Chevron said in a statement that Techron can be used in all gas inboard, outboard and sterndrive engines, including 2-stroke, 4-stroke, carbureted, port or electronic-fuel-injected, and direct-injected engines. The company said the additive stabilizes fuel for up to 24 months during storage. Its alcohol and emulsifier-free formula also prevents corrosion and optimizes performance and fuel efficiency by cleaning fuel injectors, throttle bodies, carburetors and combustion chambers.

“We listened to boaters across the country, and their key needs focused on corrosion protection, fuel stability, and dissolving gum and varnish,” Jim Smiley, Techron business manager North America with Chevron Products Co., said in the statement. “Expanding our nationwide presence through a key retail partner such as West marine will help take this product’s market penetration to new levels, and the timing is great for those taking their boats out of storage and getting ready for the 2020 boating and fishing season.”
