Default RE: Nitro fuel storage.

I had a year's supply of fuel on hand back about 7 yrs ago when suddenly I had to go to another part of the country for three years. I bought new fuel down there.

When I got back home, I started using the fuel that had been sealed up in the cartons in a dark garage for three years. It ran fine.

I've got some 4-5 year old Trinity fuel that is kept in a dark, wood storage cabinet in the garage. The temps in my area this time of year are 100+ for days at a time. I used some the other day to fire up my t-maxx and it was fine.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, my car and plane fuel get stored together and seem to cohabitate quite peacefully. [&:]
