Testing an old can of fuel

Mechanic in a Bottle fuel test kit for testing gasoline

How do you know if that old can of fuel in the barn is no longer worth using?

I had a container that was a year old and decided to give a fuel test kit a try.

You get 100 test swabs that are easy to dip into a tank or can. Our can of gas was reading marginal by the color code chart, which meant to me that it was okay to use in the Craftsman mower, but too close to the edge for any 2 cycle engines.
