Well my Z28 got fresh fuel back in Feb. and I'm still jogging it around town once a month trying to burn it all up, which is hard to do when the tags and insurance are expired...
Next time around I'll be adding some fuel stabilizer.
The miata has premium in the tank but it's been in there for 2 1/2 years. Probably just going to jumper the fuel pump this spring and open a fuel line and just dump all the fuel out. Walbro 190 HP pump at 110psi fuel delivery should make pretty quick work of 5 gallons.
Then there's the SL1 that's been sitting on E for 8 months. Guess I'll get to that in a few years.
I've yet to register/insure the truck so I'm still not sure WTF it is! I was certain it was a C/K 1500 but edmunds.com says they only came in 4.3L V6. So I click on C/K 2500 and there's a 5.0L option for regular cab like mine is, but the horsepower and torque are rated lower than what I researched and found for a 5.0L Vortec in a '96 Chevy pickup...
I gotta get to the bottom of this!
I bet it's a 2500 and the higher horsepower specs I read are inaccurate... but IDK, it'll light em up in 4th gear in the rain going 20mph with ease. Definitely lots of tq.
Is your fuel filter equipped with female nuts that mate to male flare nuts on the fuel line? If so, you can do it the suicidal way that I did.
I cut into my fuel filter's nut, parallel to the lines, not all the way down to the threads. After weeks of spraying with PB Blaster and hammering and wrenching, those cuts relieved the tension enough to make it possible to remove them.
If you have the time and patience, I recommend doing it by hand with a file or using a dremel cutoff wheel very slowly in a drill, to avoid making sparks. If you can think of any less dangerous way to do it, please do that instead. Maybe a nut splitter can crack the nuts without damaging the fuel line?
Maybe there's some way to evacuate all fuel from the line and filter by running something non-combustible through the lines?
