Just curious if anyone knows the actual life expectancy of gasoline and deisel fuel?

I have a toy hauler that holds about 60 gallons of gas, not to mention it's getting colder and riding the Wing is getting less use these days so fuel storage is something I'm concerned about. I know you can use additives, such as Staybil but how long will it stay fresh just sitting in the tank?

Thanks

If I remember correctly Gas is about 6 months or less storage time, as long as it does not have ethanol added (with ethanol less than half this time). I would tend to believe diesel could be longer as long as it does not get contaminated with moisture / water.

I usually can't keep a tank of gas more than a week. Keeps going out the exhaust and into global warming..........
