Default Fuel test kit

I have tanks of fuel in storage with stabilizing agents. I do rotate but want to reduce the amount of rotating to maybe only do it once every 3 years. But I also do not want to ruin my vehicles fuel systems.

Have any of you spent time researching and maybe have selected fuel testing kits for gasoline and diesel? If so, what are your findings and what did you go with?
All things being equal...

No knowledge on test kits but sniff test has yet to fail me with unleaded. If it still smells like gas your good.

With the power outages we had in N. CA all of my spare generators got loaned out, including a "non-runner" that i got going for a friend. It had a half tank of 3+ year old fuel. after cleaning the carb I topped off the tank with fresh fuel and it ran for the next three days...
