Beaufort, N.C.-based Parker Boats will include a sample of ValvTect Ethanol Gasoline Treatment with each new boat to help owners avoid problems that ethanol-blended gas can cause.

“Although we build our boats to the industry’s most stringent specifications, ethanol gasoline can destabilize very quickly and cause corrosion and other problems to the fuel delivery systems and engine components,” Parker Boats president Linwood Parker 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.”

“We are pleased to have Parker Boats on board with us to help educate boaters about the problems and the solution for ethanol gasoline problems,” ValvTect Petroleum Products president Jerry Nessenson said in a statement.
