I was wondering about the shelf life of gasoline. Also about motor oil also like 10W-30 how long will it last?
Gasoline is good for about 6 months untreated. At least a year with Sta-Bil. I have gotten a full 2+ years with Sta-Bil and Amoco 93 here in hot South Florida.I was wondering about the shelf life of gasoline. Also about motor oil also like 10W-30 how long will it last?
Also note, using a different the recommended by the engine manufacturer can cause a LOSS of performance in said engine.
.I did not say that the new gas is bad for them I said it went bad after only 2 or 3 months. With Echo 2-stroke oil (Which has stabilizer in it). I will say this, this gas there putting out now is crap.
What's this assumption based on? Fact is this gas is of very high quality. Only problem today is the ethanol dilution reducing the BTUs per gallon.
I will stand buy my mpg because I check it every other tank. That is the numbers I get. Driving the same and driving the same route.
And I'll stick by my observations and experiences.
Better yet, explain to me how 93 in an engine designed for 87 gets better mileage?
I run the same gas in everything from my car to my chainsaw to my troy built 4 stroke weed trimmer. it all does good. but that gas i put in a brand new chain saw it would not start and it did not start the leaf blower I have either. There for I assume it is the gas.
OK above you said the gas went bad in 2-3 months(or was it 4months old like you said in previous post??), um, up here in the rust belt our summer equipment sits at least 3 months over winter. For most of us the gas sits around much longer then that in the gas cans before it's all used up. No problems. Interesting too it still went "bad even with stabilizer in it.
I too have been about cars truck and small engines for a long time working on them. I have helped in the restoration of a few cars. Working on a Race Car that Ran 216 mph with my dad behind the wheel. I have worked on sprint cars, 2 and 4 stroke motorcycles both on and off road.Passing people wrenches or helping them turn bolts means nothing as far as gaining knowledge/experience of how and why engines work, or in this case the combustion events. Not an insult, just illustrating the irrelevance of your "helping" experience with factual understanding. Several clue bring me to this conclusion, all your posts are full of unsubstantiated testimonials, no facts, no explanations. You have all this knowledge and experience alluded to just above, yet in another post you said you have a mechanic, ... At least that is what my mechanic says.
