We have had the car sitting for about 1 year now with 1/4- 1/2 tank of gas, when it was parked. Dont know how much is left in there, but can we just put in some stabilizer and Fill the rest with new gas??? IS it to late for stabilizer . I dont think we are gonna drain it, so is stabilizer and 10 gallons of new gas good enough? We dont need to yet, but will in likea month. Please help

You should be fine. Gas does not go bad in that short period of time. Alex
