A few years ago, Mayes Martin Ltd. launched the “Spritz” name for the use in local marinas and gas stations.
We presently have approximately 10 locations that use the Spritz name as their brand of Non-ethanol gasolines and diesel fuels that local boaters trust to fill their tanks.
First, older marine engines are not designed to handle the increased corrosion and solvent effects from even the small percentages of ethanol (up to 10 percent) now found in much pump gasoline.
In that respect, they join small utility engines in chainsaws, lawn mowers, and other power equipment, many of them far older than a huge proportion of cars on the road today.
Second, the water-absorbing properties of ethanol pose a particular challenge to boats that sit stationary in storage for many months each winter.
Mayes Martin Ltd. offers marina fuel delivery in the areas of Barrie, Orillia, Bolsover, Bracebridge, and Oro. Call us today for top notch service and quality fuels.
