I have about 30 gallons of old/dirty gas I need to ditch. Any ideas?

Strain out any actual debris and use it, 1 gallon per 10 gallons of fresh gas. At that dilution it won't hurt anything.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Nope. Not putting it back in my truck. Well over seven years old and has lots of debris. It needs to go lol. Free for anyone that wants it. It's actually about 20 gallons of fresh mixed with old Crap.

if your near an airport talk to an authority there. fuel sumping airplanes is very common and the used fuel is disposed of. 20 gal of fuel is a drop to a 50,000 gallon airplane. youd have to do a general aviation airport though. Commercial is WAY to restrictive with EPA regulations. Have you spoken to your local gas station? They might have some set up .. Firestation?

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

We need to get too the desert asap. I'm sure the gas is still good...it's mostly fresh. I just don't want to mess around with filtering out any sediment that might be in it. If anybody wants it, let me know. I might see if the landscapers at work tomorrow want it. Anyways, I have another tank that's full that needs to be drained now so I can clean it and all my cans are full...balls

Just go and mow like 900 lawns, lawn mowers don't even care if it is or was gas.

ha! so you're saying i should go purchase a lawn mower now? woohoo! a trip to the depot!!

in all honesty, i'm sure its just fine to use. it was mixed with a lot of fresh gas from the get-go...i just don't want to d*** around with filtering it out when someone could just take it for free. i dont think there's a whole lot if any sediment in the cans, most of it was left in the tank when i dropped it. i just dont want to risk it as i dont want to play with it twice. i hate dealing with gas as it is.
