Can I use gas that has been sitting in my garage for a year?
It gets probably 40 degrees in there, I don't think it freezes because there is a heated apartment above the garage.

Can I use it?

Could it fuck up my truck? My generator?


If I shouldn't use it, what the fuck do I do with it?

People will tell you no.

I’ve never had an issue. I like to add it slowly, about a gallon at a time, to an existing tank full, just to be safe.

But I’ve run my generator on year old gas straight up with no problems.

I use gas that is older than that sometimes. All our equipment is fine and works regularly. You may get a few knocks and chugs but that's it. We usually fill about 40 5 gal at the beginning of fall and we use that through the winter and early spring.

Hell, I've used gas that was like 5 years old..

Just add some pri-g, good to go.
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


Yup, PRI-G is the best fuel additive there is, it not only preserves fuel, but can bring old fuel back to life. Have used it for years. You can usually get it in marinas or it’s available online, as most stores don’t carry it.

Re: Can I use gas that has been sitting in my garage for a year?
i had some gas out on a deck, maybe for around a year, i cant remember. no stabilizer. i used it to fill a truck i rented upon returning it. the engine stopped after a couple thousand feet. luckily i had insurance for it. maybe just add a little to a tank and see how it goes. adding it all is risky, unless you put fuel stabilizer in it.

Re: Can I use gas that has been sitting in my garage for a year?
You can definitely use it.

I had a Honda generator that made it through a wildfire with a full tank of gas. It had sat around for about five years without being used.

Doing repairs after the fire, we had to start it up.

First pull it didn't start. Then someone pointed out the key was turned to OFF. Turned the key to ON and it fired up right away.

It ran through the entire tank of gas without a hitch.

If you are concerned, add some fuel stabilizer or additives. But it should burn just fine.
When you are afraid of losing your life, you have already lost your life.

Don't be afraid.

I use Stabil gas stabilizer to store gas. I have used stored gas in my car that is 6-7 years old by adding 5 gallons to a 20 gallon tank with 15 gallons in it and have not had any problems at all.

Yeah I would never empty my rider each season. Used what was in tank from last. Never had issues and did for 10 plus years until I sold it and got a new one. That gas paranoia is as bullshit as an every 3k oil change. Hell my father is so paranoid about gas that he will ride the fucking thing for an hour just to get the last bit of gas out season end…fucking idiot

lmao

I've used gas that's far older. I normally wouldn't put it in a car though, I'd put it in a small engine like a lawn mower.


But even in a vehicle, I've got a car right now where some gas in it is likely a couple years old. Runs just fine. Doesn't skip a beat.

Listen carefully: if it is an engine you care about, don't use it.

I used to think it was OK to use bad gas. Then I saw it bend a pushrod in a small engine and wont do it again. This assumes it doesn't jam up your carburetor or injectors. Unless you're planning on overhauling the engine anyway, don't do it.

Use some Seafoam.

I put one bottle in 15 gal of gas.

If you use non-ethanol gas you will be fine even after 4 to 6 years.

I used some old gas and it caused my car to run so bad I thought it needed repair. Worked fine after fresh gas was put in.

Yes you can still use it but for only treating hemorrhoids. Do not put it any way near an engine or carburetor.

Ok, so I'll mark it, and use it in small doses to test it in a larger tank full of new gas. That seems like a safe option.

And I'll order more of that additive shit.

I honestly don't recall of I out additive in or not.

Don’t be a pussy it’s only a year old. Just throw it in. You most likely have a quarter to half tank fresh gas anyway

I have seen non-ethanol gas last 5 years and he perfectly fine, and I have seen 10% ethanol blended gas go bad after a few months. We are talking obviously bad, no longer smelled like gasoline, destroyed all the rubber fuel lines and carburetor diaphragms that it touched. I have also noticed that the 10% ethanol gas made in the last year or two has been going bad a lot sooner than it used to.
