How long can you store gasoline in a gas can?

three to six months
Regular gasoline has a shelf life of three to six months, while diesel can last up to a year before it begins to degrade. On the other hand, organic-based Ethanol can lose its combustibility in just one to three months due to oxidation and evaporation. Tracking the age of the fuel in your tank can be a challenge.

Does fuel have an expiry date?

When using the right fuel container, petrol can last up to one year, so long as the jerry can remains properly sealed. At 20˚ Celsius, fuel in a container with a broken seal lasts six months; at 30˚ Celsius, it lasts three months.
