What do I do with old, contaminated gasoline?
I have a couple of 6 gallon plastic gas tanks partially filled with old gasoline. The gas is years old, it has outboard motor oil mixed in, and probably a fair amount of water (the reason the engine didn't work last year was that it had water in the carburetor). It's been sitting in the tanks, is of no practical use, and at it's worse, it is a hazard. I don't want to pour it on the ground, and I don't have any idea who could take it for reprocessing. I think it would be a mistake to try to blend this off with new gasoline and attempt to burn it off in the engine. Any ideas?
