Probably time to just go ahead and burn through the gas and fill up again to keep it fresh
Volts are great cars. Test drove a Gen1 once at a Chevy dealer when we were thinking hard about letting go of my wife's Forester. Great fun car. How many months without buying gas do you normally go? As someone commented to MetroMPG, how many gallons per month do you burn?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
