    1 month old gas

    I put the car cover on about mid December with a completely full tank of gas. I procrastinated and haven't put sta-bil in the tank along with it, I have run the car twice for about 20 minutes each time to get things flowing.

    I'm gonna add some sta-bil tomorrow, but will the gas be ok for another month or so? I plan on having it back in the road in mid to late March.

    forgot to mention there's sunoco 93 in there now

    It is fine now and probably will be in another month. If you store it beyond 3 or 4 months stabil is good insurance

    just add a can of HEET in there and you will be fine. it will help to remove any moisture that might be in the system.

    I store my SS for 5 months every year. If you fill up on quality gas and add stabill, then you well have no problems.

    I use Sta-bil for added reassurance but would'nt be worried to go a year without it. Don't lose any sleep over it........

    There is more of a problem when storing during the hot months than storing during the cold months.

    I have a garage queen, and sometimes it goes over a month with the same gas in the tank, and I have had no problems starting the vehicle, you should keep a full tank of gas, to avoid the condinsation building up.
