Re: [T3] Fired up the Square

I havent heard this... leaving exposed metal parts would be worse anyway.
One thing I should add to my previous post is that gas will be OK for 6
months IN THE WINTER... you leave it in your snowblower for 6 months when
the temperature is higher and the chemistry takes over.  I dont trust any of
that gas stabilizer stuff... snake oil in my opinion but then again, Im not
a chemist.
I read once that opened oil looses some of it's

The issue with your Impala will be the ABS,   ABS cant sit... it will cause
problems.  I dont know if they use DOT 5 in it or not but from what Ive
heard it would lend me to think that they dont.
