1. I am considering becoming an "early adopter" of a plug in hybrid/electric vehicle sometime in 2012.

2. Assuming a range of 35 miles on electric power only, it would appear there will be a need for the gasoline motor to "crank up" and recharge the battery on a periodic basis. Granted, an electric charge would be done on a regular basis.

3. My question is simply this-- the fuel in the fuel tank could sit there for an extended period of time, perhaps months. How would I know that the gasoine in the fuel tank is still "good" or has gone "bad"?? A direct reply to my e-mail account at william.kehoe.thompson@us.army.mil is appreciated, or a post to this forum. Bill Thompson.
