Whats the longest time its taken to go through a gallon of fuel?
I've come to the realization that I don't fly enough. I emptied a gallon jug of fuel just the other day, when I noticed the open date I wrote on the side of the jug. I'm sad to say it was in 2008. Thats right 1 gallon of fuel for 3 years.
Whats wrong with me? I enjoy the hobby, just do not take the time to get out and fly. Hense, my flying skills show it.

The other sad part of this story, is that I have two cases of fuel sitting in the garage.

I don't even fly nitro, but I'm pretty sure it keeps for a year - not much longer. I also thought that a gallon was good for about 6 tank fulls.

6 flights . . . in 3 years? I had you beat before the 1st ray of sunshine hit my skull this morning at 6:30AM - lol.

That's it?

On a .50 size machine, that's 10 flights.

Fuel if kept shut will last up to 7 years as long as u keep moisture out of it. Go to Morgan fuel website to verifie this . I went thru 12 gallons of 5 year old Red Max year before last. Yes u need to FLY MORE LOL DAVE

You must fly electric, or else you've flown less then 10 flights in 4 years...that is not liking the hobby.
