How long does gasoline last in a gas tank. Have an old car I will start soon.

Don't chance it. Drain the old gas, drop the tank and have it cleaned and replace all of the fuel lines. Old, gummy gas can ruin a motor.

At about a month, you need to add fuel stabilizer. After that, i would just as soon drain the old stuff.

Listen to the hippie! Don't try to start it without doing something first. You'll pump crappy jello gas into your carb/fuel injectors and all lines.
Go to the auto parts store and buy yourself two cans of Sea Foam. They cost about nine bucks a piece. Stuff works miracles. It will clean out the tank dump a can in the tank. Then add some gas and let it sit. Once you start it, burn out all that gas and fill up the tank and dump the other can in. You can also put it in the crank case with oil.

3 to 6 months, but you can buy an additive to make your gas last longer.
