Apex Marine, a manufacturer of compact pontoon boats, will include a sample of ValvTect ethanol gasoline treatment with each new boat to help its new owners avoid problems that can be caused by ethanol blended gasoline, ValvTect announced.

"Although we build our boats to the industry's most stringent specifications, ethanol gasoline can destabilize very quickly, cause corrosion and some problems to the fuel delivery systems and engine components, which can be prevented by a fuel additive such as ValvTect ethanol gasoline treatment," Apex Marin president Mark DuPuie said in a statement.

"By providing samples of ValvTect ethanol gasoline treatment with each boat, we are helping our customers prevent ethanol-related problems and better enjoy their boating experience," he added.
