Storing fuel
« on: October 23, 2018, 01:21:38 PM »
I’m looking at storing some fuel, both diesel and petrol at my brother’s  property. Does anyone use stabilisers or have experience with how long  fuel can be stored please?

 :cheers:

There are quite a lot of fuel stabilsers on the market for both petrol and diesel. I'd add a fungicide to the diesel if the additive you choose doesn't have one. Maybe also buy your fuel from a reputable brand that has high turnover. In any event, it looks like 12 months is about it.
200 Series 2008, bull bar, Airmax snorkel,rack with 200 watt solar, third battery, winch, 33's with 2 spares, long range tank, drawers & barrier, bash plates, lifted & locked, Richards transmission lockup plus plenty of dings. Chinese camper trailer with even more dings (now sold).
