Oil refineries, and the companies that operate them, don't want you to know about this, but they mix additives into certain volatile
refined hydrocarbons (like heptane, octane, etc) to improve performance (good), to eliminate knock (good). But the additives and the
gasoline formula mix BREAK DOWN slowly, so that by six months of storage, it is no longer good.
UM...go to any gas supplier website and you'll see them proudly announce that they use additives.
Also, the shelf life of gasoline is well know both within and outside the preparedness community, and has been for decades.
No coverup or conspiracy here.
