Default NITRO FUEL

Yo all!

Does any 1 know what's the nitro fuel shelf life when bought?
If consumed once, what's the shelf life then? ....I bought a 3Lt can some time in May, 2007......and still lots to go!

Thanks, yo all!

After you consume, it may upset your stomach and your life expectancy is very short j/k.
Shelf life span of the fuel depends on how you store it. Just don't let the cap open for so long because the fuel is hygroscopic (it absobs moisture like a sponge). Don't leave it under direct from sunlight (it will build up pressure) and ensure the cap is tightened and store it in a cool dry place, it will last longer.
