STICK IN SOME FRESH FUEL
Petrol goes stale, so a couple of gallons of fresh ‘go juice’ will help bring your recalcitrant old smoker back to life. I’m no chemist, but I am aware that modern petrol doesn’t retain its potency as well as the old, badfor-people stuff did. A slight varnish-like smell is an indicator that all is not well with the fuel, but I’d advise against sticking one’s nose into the filler neck. Your car is going to get through the stuff anyway, so popping a couple of gallons – that’s 4.55 litres x 2 for those who still look pretty – into the tank shouldn’t be a deal breaker.
