Some store their car for several months at a time and the batteries are often talked about. But gasoline going bad is rarely mentioned. The question "how long is gas good "? is a common discussion. I have used gas that is several years old many times with no problems, but everywhere I read that is good for as little as 1 month. It sounds like people are trying to blame something else for engine problems to me. What is everyone's experience? Would you buy a car or something else that had not been run for a year?
