I recently stored away some extra gas…..just in case (as usual). I choose to use several 5 gallon and 2 gallon plastic gas containers. I know, I know…..use metal. Well – I didn’t have the money to order Jerry cans online and I will rotate my fuel every 6 months or so.
I have seen testimonies that gasoline will last for a year or more no problem in a plastic can. I have also heard he opposite. Since I need to be able to depend on this fuel to use in my vehicles as well as my generator – I decided to treat it.
There are a couple of well known fuel stabilizers on the market – and I chose to treat my stored fuel with PRI-G.
The use of PRI-G fuel gas treatment allows gas to be stored for many months – even indefinitely if re-treated periodically. From the research performed PRI-G can be used on regular fill-ups as a gas treatment to prevent carbon build up and fouling as well. Just one 16 ounce bottle can treat up to 256 gallons.
For diesel owners – there is also a PRI-D for you.
Important: Store fuel away from your residence. You just never know what will happen so I keep my fuel cans in my shed – which is at least 60 feet from my home.
