I have a 75 Jeep CJ5 with a 360 V-8 that I use as a backup car. It can sit in the back yard for up to 6 mo. When sitting for this long, the gas does deteriate but the car does start and run. If really old gas, then it will run rough, hesitate, and knock(ping) under heavy acceleration. If I un hook the fuel line and pump some out, It will be as dark as new motor oil. I now run the Jeep about every two weeks to burn off some fuel and add a little fresh gas. Sta-bil is a good idea too.
