Default Old Fuel?

-I have an Associated GT that has not been ran in some time, and i would like to fire her up today. The fuel i have for it is probably 3 years old. Will this fuel still be good, or should i buy new? It has been stored in a dry basement, so i don't think there should be any water in it. Would YOU use it?

Default Fuel

If it doesn't have water in it it is still ok. Alky will get cloudy if it has water in it. Hope this helps.

Default old nitro fuel

IMO, I would recommend to try a little amount and if the engine runs OK, I would use it. I've been using up some nitro that is 4 years old with no problems.

If you have some fresh fuel, I would run that first to make sure everything is good to go and then try a small amount of the old nitro to compare results. If the fuel is no good, you can always dump it out of the tank and use fresh fuel. Hope that helps.
