  • Fuel check

    Is there a way to actually test fuel and it's mixing ratio? I have 40gal of gas in this tank and would hate to just dispose of it not knowing if it's good fuel or not.

    Smell it, if its rank or smells like varnish get rid of it. if the fuel is blue colered it is premixed. If you have a older tractor or lawn mower you can use it in there sparingly. My old John Deere loves old pre-mix fuel. Heck its happy to just be alive. dave

      I had a friend in Alaska who burned his old pre-mix fuel in his Chevy Z-71. Thing seemed to love it!

        My only consern with putting this stuff in a late model auto, is the cataletic convertor. Don't need that stopped up.
