Default Re: Really old gasoline question

Old highly oxidized gasoline has a smell like varnish/turpentine on steroids. If you get it on you, you will reek of it until it wears off. I'm not partial to that odor at all.

I like my 1956 Ford 850 tractor well enough that I would drain that out and kill weeds with it. I like to keep that old Marvel Schebler carb and that engine top end in good shape. That old crap ain't gas anymore and mixing it with good gas doesn't make it any better.
