Never Let Gasoline Sit In Your Car Longer Than This

Never Let Gasoline Sit In Your Car Longer Than This

Scotty shows how modern gasoline breaks down quicky and you don't want it sitting inside you car's gas tank all that long. Learn what to do if you are storing a car to keep the gasoline from breaking down and clogging up the fuel system.

I had a 2003 f150. Some ass put a political sign wire frame between my aluminum drive shaft and the frame. It cut my drive shaft and cracked the trans all the way through the bell housing. It sat for 3 years with a full tank. Changed the trans. It started right up and ran fine on that tank.

Hi Scotty, my 2012 Nissan Altima has 70,000 miles on it. When I turn the a/c on, the car vibrates at idle and I notice a drop in power, engine revs louder at 3k+ rpms, and gas mileage is horrible. The stealership said I probably need the throttle body and fuel injectors cleaned. Also when i put it into gear either drive or reverse it kicks a little. What do you think could be the problem? Thanks.

realize the E10 has additive that prevent the ethanol inside to cause problems. Most things are myths these days by guys who are not gasoline engineers
