Question type: General

yesterday went to start car and it just turned over as if it was out of gas.So i put 1 gallon
in it,When i opened fuel cap it smelled like bad gas.it still would not start so i put 1 more
gallon in it still wouldn't start,sprayed either and started right up,do you think i sucked
something into the filter from bottom of tank?Or is 2 gallons not enough because sitting
empty in the hot sun in arizona,I hear my pump run when i turn key,Im hoping more gas

I would empty the tank of the old gas, install a new filter and fill her up again. http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthread.php/when-old-gas-too-old-use-19021.html http://www.answers.com/Q/Can_you_mix_old_gasoline_with_new_gasoline
