Gasoline is a petroleum derived, liquid fuel that is generally used to operate motored vehicles such as cars, trucks, and SUVs. It can also be used to power generators and many other machines.

Long-Term Storage

If left in a container for longer than 60 days, oxidation may occur, resulting in "stale gas". This occurs when elements in the gasoline oxidize, creating gummy buildups that may impede the proper operation of an engine. If gas is to be stored in a container (including a gas tank on a vehicle), an antioxidant stabilizing agent such as PRI-G or STA-BIL should be used to preserve the integrity of the fuel. Reducing the temperature of the stored gas, and reducing its exposure to air, will also help the gasoline to last longer without deterioration.
