Jim,



No award; it's just that youbre an engineer and you look for complexity.

From one engineer to another.  p

It still seems OK in the UK - the TR7V8 starts and runs on 6 month old fuel.

I've never had a problem with this. When I lay a car up for the winter, I fill

the tank and add a fuel stabilizer formulated to prevent phase separation (CRC

Phase4). With a full tank, there is less air space, hence less water vapor to

be absorbed into the gas. In addition, with a wedge car, the fuel system is

not vented, so less chance of water vapor getting in.

There are a very few stations still selling real gas.  Makes a very noticeable

difference in my 80s musclebikes.  Smoother idle and generally sweeter

reaction to throttle inputs
