It can be purchased at WalMart in the boating section.
and E-10. ALL SNAKE OIL. No product had any measurable effect. I used standard ASTM tests. If you are interested in running your own tests, I can tell you how. I hate bogus advertising.

Keep the tank full (fill when you return to the dock, not when you head out) and sail lots - those are the cures.

I guess I worded that strongly. As I said, I ran the tests. I was actually hoping some product would work.
