Default fuel ?'s

I asked this same question in the rookie zone but i don't
think many people look in there so i will ask it here it seem
to be a more popular forum.

How long in Nirto Fuel good for i have ahd my car in storage for
almost 5 years along with the fuel thats been in my garage for
the same amount of time, it still looks as blue as it did the day
i bought it but i don't want to mess any of my engines up.

it should be alright, u wont stuff up ur engine, if the fuel is gone bad it might have condensation around the top. my advice to you would be go and buy some new fuel its better than buying a new engine.

I've always been told that fuel is good up to two years. Personally, I would not run fuel past two years. Like many here are saying, just get a fresh quart or gallon of fuel. I would not run old fuel due to the stability of the mix decaying after time.
I have had some bad fuel in the past. In fact, I bought it still sealed in the container and ran it. The tune was poor and the temps were not constant. Performance sucked. I don't run old fuel but I do use it for removing permanent marker marks and paint in my classroom!
