Bought at a salvage auction nearly 5 years ago. Started but didn't move. Probably would have been parted out, the body is real nice. Turned out the flywheel was stripped so I got a used one soon after, from a member here, swapped it out but didn't do anything with it because the brakes were sticking. Fast forward and I just finished the brakes. Took it for I drive and it runs great. Even with over 200K the CVT is smooth with no bearing noise. Battery pack seems strong but will need more driving to check out fully. Need to burn through a half tank of 5 year old gas anyway.

impressive. I'd be filling that sucker up with the highest octane fuel you can find for 3 or 4 tanks to maybe try and get that old fuel out

how many miles are on it?

I'll run it until bone dry before filling up but there is nothing wrong with old gas in fuel injected cars. Had no problems in cars with 8 or 10 year old fuel.
