    Left in a car's fuel tank without periodically running the engine, gasoline degrades & leaves deposits that gunk up the entire system. Heat & humidity exacerbate the process. Fuel additives like Sta-bil can slow the process up to a year, maybe longer. Ex: I had to drain my boat's fuel tank after it sat idle for 5 months when I had shoulder surgery. Two years into the ZA? Nah ah.

    When they start a car they found just sitting roadside for 2 years is one of my biggest gripes about the show. Drives my husband insane, & that's a short trip & I ride shot gun. Then again, he's a Tug Captain who moves barges from refineries in Texas City thru the Houston Ship Channel to all over the US, & after 30 years he knows his HazMat cargoes inside out.

    So either load up on Sta-bil now for your ZA ride now or pray to God you stumble on a car whose dead owner had the foresight to do it.

    I just drained some gas out of a relative's ATV that's been sitting in his barn for 3 years. It looked like green anti-freeze, and even had a sickly sweet smell......and he wonders why it won't fire up.

    As they're still driving vehicles around on a regular basis on TWD, I think ZA gas is different than the gas in our reality.lol
