Stale Petrol?

Post by davethesteam » Sat May 02, 2020 3:17 pm

I have a 2018/68 Niro PHEV.
So far very pleased with it.
Under Covid, I am using no petrol at all as all my motoring is on battery only.
The last fill up I had (supermarket) was in February and am unlikley to need a fill up again until the summer.
Do I need to add anything to the fuel to stop any waxing?

This is a good point. I would suggest you don't charge the battery at all but let the car behave as a HEV. You're doing so few miles the economy is unimportant. Not aware of any additives that do what you say.
