I bought and filled a Jerry can with unleaded back in July in readiness for a petrol mower I didn't get (I ended up buying a cordless). The Jerry can has been sat on a shelf in the garage since.

If I add it to the half full petrol tank in my car, will anything bad happen?

Thanks

yeah it'll be fine that, takes a long time for petrol to go off. I was always worried with motorbike, as used to put that away October and not get out until MOT time around mid March... but it was fine everytime. Suppose the only thing that could effect it is extreme temps in storage, other than that, as long as sealed it'll be good to go.
