    Disposing of bad gasoline

    Several years ago we got ahold of some bad gasoline. Everyone in town did, apparently b/c the guys at the shop noticed a rash of lawn tractors and such coming in with clogged carburetors. They stated asking folks where they were getting their non-ethanol gas and every one said the same place.

    We still have four 5-gal containers of it. We could use the containers. What's the best-- and yes, environmentally friendly b/c we're not killing the large mouth by dumping it in the lake-- way to dispose of it? We've thought about using it on burn piles but the guys who manage those usually do a much slower burn than would be started with gas.

    As I said, it's been sitting for years.

    Let it evaporate. Or mix a bit of oil with it and burn it that will lower the flash point

    Bon fire or Molotov cocktails. Always fun to put in plastic bottles and throw in fires for that little extra flash. Won't take long to get rid of.

    Funny I am in the exact same situation as you. I recently started working on a project again that I started three years ago. Needless to say this fuel smelled nasty. $80 in gas cans just to hold bad fuel haha

    I was told I could take it to a recycling center, I have not tried to look up any info about that yet

    There is/was a guy who made white gas lantern fuel by distilling unleaded gas on an electric hotplate.

    Forgot to make explicit that it has sediment in it. Anyway, how long do you think it will take to evaporate?
