Anyone tried Stabil 360?

I'm considering using Stabil 360 to treat my fuel, both to prevent any future problems related to using fuel with ethonol in it and as a stabilizer since I don't drive the car very often. Anyone tried this new product yet? It is supposed to treat the entire fuel system with a vapor. Another question I had is whether the 1M uses a plastic fuel tank. If it does, perhaps the vapor treatment is not necessary and regular Stabil would be sufficient. I'm a bit hesitant to try a product that hasn't been on the market a long time.

Worth a shot if you don't drive it often, that's where ethanol hurts the most. I presume you are in a state where you can't get gas sans the corn? Check out pure-gas.org as there is no additive to replicate the real thing. When I lived in Illinois, I was SOL...but in MN, ethanol free premium is somewhat ubiquitous, relatively speaking. It comes at the expense of Octane (91 vs. 93 at my local BP), but when I store my car over the winter, it's a no brainer to get the pure stuff in there along with a stabilizer.

Can't find ethanol-free gas here in DC.
