Unless I go through the whole jug before MY renewal date....I always buy new gas after 3 months.

question . if u put the fuel in the cabinet or table maybe its still gud.. if u leave it on the cement and for 2yrs its no good coz it builds up moisture.

if u want to be sure just buy a new fuel.

it was in a a cabinet in a garage but the outside temps have fluctuated from 20 below to 90 above (last summer) i just did not have time to use it up. (i work too much) i ordered quart bottles this time. once i open one ill be sure to use it up. im sure unopened ones will last a while.
