  1. Gas getting old?

    Care, Maintenance & Service - Chevy Volt
    I run almost exclusively in electric-only mode. The gas in my tank has been there for at least six months if not more. How long can I let it sit there before it "goes bad"? Should I put stabilizer in the tank? Of course I could run in "hold" mode until the tank is empty, but that would screw up...

    OK, many of us have remains of semi-stale gasoline in our Volts' gas tanks, but with the cold weather, holiday season travel, and winter gasoline mix, some of us are about to find ourselves in that long-forgotten place called a gas station and encounter E15 gasoline. According to the 2012 Volt...
  6. Gasoline degredation?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I find that I am not using gasoline in my Volt at all. The gasoline tank remains full. How long can gasoline stay in the motor before it degrades and potentially harms the motor in some way?
  7. When will the Volt run on E85 gasoline?

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    Long before the Volt was released GM advised the Volt will run on E85 gas. There are still video's out there advising of this. Is there any word on if the 2012 Volt can use E85 gas? Checkout the link I have posted of a video on Youtube that has been posted by Chevrolet. It mentions "as long as...
