I understand Techron/PEA to be a detergent/cleaner, not a stabilizer, so I'd put in the Stabil (I use the marine or 360 versions). If I had Techron laying around, I might add some in addition, but not instead of the Stabil.

They do very different things. If you want to keep the fuel fresh, do not use fuel with ethanol, and use Stabil.

I stored a car with a steel tank and atmospheric venting for 6 months and it started up just fine coming out of storage.

When it was down to a quarter of a tank of fuel I added one full bottle of Redline SI1 and one full bottle of Marine Stabil, and filled the tank to the top with Shell 99 octane.
Drove to the storage location and left it there with no other prep apart from disconnecting the battery (IIRC) and at the end of the 6 months it started and drove with no fuel related issues.

Was that in the UK? Does the UK use oxygenated/ethanol fuel? If not (lucky!), that may have helped as well!

Stabil is a marketing scam.

IMO, you may want to worry more about the seals/o-rings issues with low mileage driven car than the fuel living in MS.

I had a boat fron 1972 untill 2002 and never use a gas additive for storage as well as a power washer not run for 3 years and no problems. 2 Honda lawn mowers and 2 string trimmers that sit from the end of October until May.

I have stored many collector cars and always use Stabil Marine(green) and it also is a cleaner... Great stuff.
