    I need to drain about 2-3 gallons of bad gas and dont know what to do with it. If I have a VERY small amount of gas to dispose of I pour it on the weeds that grow in the cracks of the drive way, but not this much.


    Some one educate me PLEASE!!!

    OK so I have the same thing except:

    I know there is water in the fuel so I do not want to use it for anything...Especially my new F150!!!

    If you don't want to use it, it's a hazardous waste,
    take it to the county hazardous waste disposal site.

    I never followed up on my original post, but I did add hi-test to the old fuel with a little extra oil, and just used it 1 quart at a time until it was gone. I use my boat a lot, so it didn't take very long, and my '96 Johnny 15 never knew the difference. At least I couldn't tell any difference. I only had about a gallon and a half (seemed like more until I started measuring it). If you have a lot, do what Brett said and take it to recycle. Not worth taking a chance with a new motor, especially if you're sure it has water in it. My old fuel had no noticeable amount of water in it.

    Kemo :cool:
