    This is just a general question because I'm thinking about getting the new Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid.

    There are times I will drive the car pretty far so this shouldn't be a problem but I'm just wondering about this...
    If this were my 80 year old in-laws driving, then the car would never leave the neighborhood. So they would almost always run on battery and never gas.
    Would there be a risk of the gas going stale in the car?

    Yes, this is why the volt will turn on the engine to burn the old gas in the tank.
