Are they oily inside? If not don't worry about it. I would use a cup of gas and mix it around and dispose of it.

Two stroke gas is nothing more than gas with some oil in it. The worst that will happen is that your engine may smoke a little. Unless they're super oily inside fill one up part way, slosh it around, repeat with the other, add it to your Jeep tank when you're low on gos and then fill the Jeep with clean fuel.

That or do a diesel swap fill

If its just some 2stroke left over just do what StvDiego said. Cars can burn up any 2 stroke oil left over. i used to dump any left over premix into my truck for the ride home from the desert, burned it no problem. that way i wouldnt have to worry about how old the gas in my cans was.

The only weather report you should ever believe is when they say "it's raining right now" and you look out the window and confirm it.

Just empty those cans completely, fill them full of gas, and forget it. The PPM of oil in five gallons of gas will not be noticed at all.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

2-3 hour job for the BL/MML, goes pretty easily on newer TJ's, it could easily be done in an after work session. Mine took about two hours with discussion and
