    so i just got a 1990 gti 8v off a buddy of mine. its been sitting in his garage a few years and i finally convinced him to sell it. im going to change all the fluids tomorrow but im wondering about the gas. he said there isnt much gas in it so should i just drain whats left in there add fresh gas and be good to go? or do i need to add some kind of cleaner/stabilizer to it.

    the car is in awesome condition and has been garage kept its whole life. I actually purchased these wheels years ago for my mk3 gti so its nice to have them back.

    Stale gas is going to be the least of your problems. How long has it been sitting?

    Car looks good. New battery and fluid flush and I bet she will be good to go.
