Old Gas - Problems, Tips, Tricks?
Posted 29 August 2007 - 10:51 AM
Great news my '79 Brat is being shipped to me as we speak and I should have it a week from today. Yesterday I just received "How to Keep your Subaru Alive - The Complete Idiot's Guide". Great book! As soon as I get the Brat, I am going to take a ton of pictures, and do the Idiot's guide inspection step by step. Of course I realize you are supposed to do the inspection on the car before you buy it, but what the hell. Brats are hard to find out here and I wanted one really bad. I will be sure to post you guys with the pictures and the inspection results!!
Anyways, my question. The car has been sitting for 4 years. The owner bought a new battery for it yesterday, emailed me that it started right up and ran very strong but had a rough idle and indicated that it was more than likely due to the 4-year old gas in the tank. So my question, are there any additives, or other tricks I can use, to make the car a little happier as I burn through this 4-year old tank? I'd like it running 'normally' as I do the inspection. Do I even have anything to worry about? What would you all do?
