    What's the best additive for gasoline to be stored for an extended period? Where can I get it?

    What are your thoughts regarding max shelf life of gasoline w/ additive stored in 5 gal plastic container?

    Anyone stored gas for years, then ran it through a vehicle? Did you get typical mpg numbers? Trying to decide if I would need to adjust my range numbers.

    I appreciate any help. :)

    Thanks EL. :)

    Six years? Really? Much more than I need as I slowly use and rotate. There's a fire code here that only allows 25 gallons to be stored in a residential building.

    I haven't made the leap to outside storage tanks/drums yet ... this is just to get me to the in-laws place in case I need to leave Atlanta in a hurry.

    I appreciate the help. :D

    I want to say it was a little longer than that, but without looking at the thread I can't be positive. Sta-Bil would be the way to go.

    If its just in a residential building then you could most likely have a lawn shed or some such and just keep the gas in there and not have to worry about the reg.

    PRI products beat Stabil hands down IMHO.

    PRI-G for gas and PRI-D for diesel.

    Do a Google for sources and look at several.....prices vary quite a bit. Seems I paid about 70-80 bucks for a gallon last I bought, but a gallon will treat a LOT.

    I've personally used them to store gas and diesel for 4 years in sealed 55gal drums. Sealed and in a cool location is a major part of the equation.
