Fuel Stabilizer

Postby donba » Tue Mar 12, 2013 4:20 pm

Have just started storing gas,2-5 gal. cans. Our plan is to replace yearly. With Stabilizer, a one year time frame seams reasonable to me. Has anyone had problems with gas stored, and stabilized in cans for this time period?

I've got a 300 gallon bulk tank that I last filled 3 years ago.. no stabilizer in it. Still works fine.

Pri-G for gas and Pri-D for diesel. Works great.

I just used a week or so ago 2 6 gal cans that were 1 and 1.5 year old with Stabil in them. Ran through the Flexfuel van just fine. I try and not use old fuel in small motors like the lawn mower or generator.

I use Stabil, Stabil Marine Formula, Sea Foam, etc. Before anyone jumps in saying their no good the key is rotation. The fuel here at the house gets consumed and refreshed every 2-3 months and the fuel at the cabin gets turned over every 4-5 months.

There is no reason to let fuel get old.......burn it and replace it.
