Never bothered to date. Have had a Street since 09 and this is my 3rd one without issues after winter hibernation

Plenty on the web like this
http://www.fuel-testers.com/expiration_of_ethanol_gas.html

Over winter in a brimmed tank - not a problem. Mine also starts first time after not running for 2 months. After reading this I probably wouldnt leave it for 12 months with half a tank. If it doesn't start you know "phase separation" has happened and you need fresh fuel.
