Everyone knows a lot about gasoline and ethanol gasoline. What about methanol gasoline?
Food has a shelf-life, which will deteriorate over time, as well as methanol and gasoline.
As a popular means of transportation, automobiles now exist in every household. Some people often use automobiles. Others use less cars in peacetime. Cars are often idle. They may stop for several months.
Engines are like human stomachs. Methanol gasoline is food. Can methanol gasoline stored for a long time continue to be used?
Methanol gasoline is a mixture of methanol, additives and gasoline. It is well known that methanol is hydrophilic, and methanol leaking in the air for a long time will absorb water. The molecular structure of the main substances in gasoline is carbon and hydrogen. Gasoline exposed in the air for a long time will also undergo slow chemical reactions, and react with oxygen to produce colloids!
When the moisture content in methanol gasoline exceeds a certain amount, it will occur stratification phenomenon, that is, oil-water stratification!
When the deteriorated methanol gasoline is burned in the engine, it will cause insufficient combustion, which will produce coke-black COKE-DEPOSITED chemicals, which will cause friction, damage and blockage on the inner wall, piston and valve of the engine, and then cause engine failure for a long time.
So methanol gasoline also has a shelf life. Through scientific experiments and summary, methanol gasoline can be stored for one year under the condition of good sealing, and the storage time after exposure to air is 3-5 months.
