Old Gas

I just changed the fuel tank in my '88, now I have about 10 gallons of old gas to get rid of. I live in the city so dumping it on my property is out of the question, I also called the city I live in and they were of no help. The gas is a few years old, I recently bought the truck and it had been sitting for over 2 yrs.
anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Old Gas

here kitty kitty kitty.
Mix it with oil for color and bring it to pep boys/ straus /zone/ and see if they'll take it. Say it's from a diesel and that's why it's so thin. Oh the gas smell???? bad injector flooded the motor, but i fixed it thanks!!! They're clueless anyway, might as well take advantage of it. What year? What motor?? ALL I NEED IS A TURN SIGNAL BULB
I had the same problerm once. I took it to the marina by my house and dumped it in the used oil drum. Where is the closest recycling center?

Re: Old Gas

Mix a little into your new tank with new gas on each fill up until it's all gone. Make sure you use a filter before adding into your tank. Shouldn't notice unless you have a lot of water and . Add a bottle of dry gas if needed.

Re: Old Gas

Re: Old Gas

I have a waste oil tank at work and the pick up guy said it doesn't matter what you put in it as long as it's a petrolium product.

oil, ATF, gear oil, gas, diesel, grease, hydraulic oil, etc....

He pitches a fit if theres any water or antifreeze in it and if there is any chlorinated solvents (brake cleaner, carb cleaner, etc...), he refuses to pick it up. One of his other customers had waste oil contaminated with brake cleaner and it cost him $1500 to dispose of the waste oil. Now he tests all the oil he picks up.

Re: Old Gas

Take two empty 5 gallon cans down to your least favorite gas staion

Fill em' up, get a recipt, take em' home and dump em' into the bronco. Now put the old gas in the five gallon cans and march right down to the gas station and demand your money back for their defective gasoline and that they dispose of "this garbage gasoline forthwith !" They should count themselves lucky that you're not sueing for the way it made your lawn mower/snow blower run !

Re: Old Gas

um dont due the 2 five gallon can idea, thats fraud, as in illegal and if they where to catch on. Large fleet companies some times take it cause, they got lots of trucks, wich use lots of oil, wich make lots of oil. Thus they might have a waste oil burner they can burn it it. I know i got ahold of a waste oil burner from a quarry that was shut down. They where halling crap out of it and i asked if i could have one. Works wonders heating.
