Gasoline

I am getting ready to deploy for 6 months in support of America finest fighting machine. I will have to put my 66 Chevy 2 in stowage during this time. My question is what type of gas should I put in, regular or premium and what stowage additive for gas is the best? I have been told that the some additives in premium gas breaks down quicker then the gas itself.

DAVID: Six months isn't that long of storage time. Wal Mart and most auto parts stores carry a product called Stabil which is an storage additive....GOOD LUCK...DAVE

I agree, use the Stabil. I have gotten good service from that product, in the Bikes and in the Cars! I also use it in the extra gas tank on my PU truck, I don't switch over very often.

Ditto on the Stabil and if possible just have someone start it once a month or every couple of months and let it run for about a half hour or so. For that length of time it will dry out any moisture and will circulate the fluids. It won't use up much gas either.

I will take care of the problem!!

I know this is asking a lot of me you guys, but I will come out and personally drive your cars around for you and that Camaro especially should never sit for a week and a half before I drive it for you... No problem here guys, consider it done....OK? OH Yea and leave a gas card, as I may need to take extended trips with your cars and you wouldn't want ME to pay for gas would you?????
