Default Fuel question

I have most of a gallon of O'Donnell 20% left over from last summer. It has been stored in a cool, dry place. Is it OK to use this fuel or does this stuff "go bad" over time? Thanks for any advice.

just buy a new nitro dude....

and i agree with marcos... condensation will occur. you dont want to run your engine with H20 are you?

old fuel also will affect your engine idle and performance. always buy a small amount of fuel if you only do weekend bashing. so you will be sure you always use a fresh nitro.

if your LHS dont have a small 1 litre or 2 litres nitro...and you are 'forced' to buy a bigger tin of nitro... pls ensure you have an air-tight cap for the nitro tin... dont let the air and moisture go in!!!!
