    I'm looking at a cruiser thats been parked (in-op) for two+ years and I doubt any gas stabilizer was ever used. Whats the best way to check the quality of the gas before it's turned over? or areas in the fuel line that are more likely to be problematic beyond changing the filter. Any thoughts..Thanks, O.

    Smell it. If it smells varnished, it's bad. More than likely is, so just drain out and put fresh in. There was a thread just posted on this same issue.
