Default Warm day fuel expansion and stabil stains....removal product?

Usually time and sunlight helps this a lot, but boat was tilted so it hit virgin turf which irritated me.

Any product really work for this......not guessing, but something that has worked? Thanks

I would try soft scrub with bleach.

If it's on the side of the boat, use collinite pre wax and a micro fibre cloth. Oh and soft scrub wins all battles, but it should only be used where it can 'take' it.

^ Maybe this, but be very careful using Soft Scrub on smooth get coat anyplace on the boat.

I have had the same issue, and would recommend trying (1)regular gasoline first, then (2)Acetone, then as a last resort (3)a very mild rubbing compound and/or Soft Scrub that contains bleach - that was my procedure anyway. Sometimes straight gasoline would remove the stain, sometimes Acetone would, and #3 always worked as a last resort.
