    Like they say.... “If it sounds too good to be true it probably is”... And in this case... It is... But true at the same time...

    I have about 35 gallons of old gasoline in 5 different gas cans and one non-functioning rear tank on my 1995 F350 that I have no idea what to do with. My two one gallon cans have old gas mixed with two stroke oil and I have 3 other 5 gallon cans two of which are full and on is about 1/2 full. I would guess the newest gas is two years old and the oldest is maybe five. I think the rear tank on the F350 is 19 gallons and is full. I bought the truck 2 years ago and the PO said the gas had been in there for two years when I bought it.

    If anyone in the Spokane area has some use for some old gasoline I would love to give it to you. I will even deliver.
    If not, does anyone have any (legal) ideas as to how I can get rid of it?

    Great Idea Dave! I will make napalm and sell it on eBay, :D

    Shipping insurance might be kinda expensive though.

    Hey Rick, I wonder how much stuff is dumped on the road due to drain plugs falling out :wink:
    Seriously, you can take it to the waste energy plant. I got rid of 20 gals. Call in advance or you will have to leave your cans with them. They only have scheduled container dumping, something about worker safety reg's. Cheers

    Nah... Not fit for even a KLR. I used some in my lawn mower but since I figured out that if don't water my lawn I won't need to mow it that solution became moot. :D

    I was attempting to give away an old style propane tank that was mostly full on Craigslist and it was exactly as n16 described. :lol3 I quickly pulled the ad.
