Stale gas

Wed Nov 13, 2019 11:14 pm

Just bought my phew. Since 95% of my driving will be electric, should I worry that the gas will “go bad” over time. Anyone suggests I periodically run the gas engine.

I have cars sitting around for years. I keep battery maintainers on all of them. They start right up no issues as long as the batteries are okay. I do try to keep the gas tanks full. The tank in the PHEV is very small. It is easy to consume if you are worried. Just don't charge it for a little while, once a year maybe, (to use up the gas,) if you're worried.
