Hi guys, is there a shelf life for fuel at all? As in does it or can it go bad?? Also ar there any brands of nitro that are better to run with than other? Thanks.
I've had fuel sit in the shed for 12 months+ when i had a break from rc and when i got back into it the fuel was still alright, had to adjust the tune slightly but all good. Now i have an esky that sits in my workshop out of the light on the cement floor to keep it cool when the weather warms up and to keep it out of the sun.As lng as the container is 100% airtight and kept in a cool place out of the direct sunlight you should be fine. I have some NitroX fuel that is over 6 months old and it was still fine when I used it the other weekend. In summer I used to keep nitro in the garage beer fridge.

Should be if you remove the extra air from the bottle and have stored it out of the light. I generally run Nitro-X or Redback Racing fuel, and have never had a problem, some motors have 25+ liters on them without rebuild.So being opened for a while and sitting there should be okay if sealed for the whole time?
Is there anyway to test it other than try it with a motor? Is there better brands of fuel out there vs. others in Oz?

To test it, drink it nah not really, the only way to test is to put it in the car and try, worst it will do is run like crap or not at all, if it wont run swap to some fresh fuel to check your tune and if its not that you know its the fuel
