Will the gas go bad in my Ford Fusion Energi?

In December of 2013, I leased a 2013 Ford Fusion Energi, and I LOVE the car. I have driven nearly 1,300 miles, and I have yet to put gas in it. My gas tank has about 1/4 left right now. My only concern: will the gas go bad? I heard that it will affect my engine if I leave it in there too long. Also, what if I fill my tank while it's still at a 1/4 of a tank and put new gas on the old gas?

Thoughts? Questions?

    No, gasoline can remain stable for much longer than that--certainly longer than it will take you to use up a tankful. If you want to reduce the risk of condensation in the gas tank, keep it filled up more regularly. Running the gas gauge to close-to- empty is never a good idea anyway.
