If you keep a once opened container of Seafoam or Stabil on your shelf for a couple of yearsis it still good?

Seafoam has alcohol in it so I wouldn't be surprised if it leaked some of that off.
Don't know about Naptha but pale oil should be fine.
So I don't think it would go bad but it might be a bit less effective at cleaning.

I've had Stabil in my generator gas tank since Hurricane Ike, still runs every time I pull the cord.

If you keep stabil too long it will go bad, if you have an older bottle look at the bottom you just may see sedatives floating around in there and I think the label even says it is only good for 2 years. Not good for carbs of course now when it is mixed with gas alreadythat may be a different story.



Seafoam I have checked an open canafter about a year and saw nothing in it.

LOL.........OK little particles floating around in there.....I was multi tasking and



obviously not doing a good job ! If I had said Colloidal would that have been



better ? LOL or I'll make it easy for the simple people if stabil sits too long



it will get floaters in it whether the bottle has been opened or not.

I had a forgotten can of seafoam in my fishing boat. It was probably there about three years taking in the sun. When I opened it, it was green and muddy. I would say if it is still clear, it's probably OK.
