I would get an empty 55 gal drum, and use it in small increments for burning or list it on craigslist for free. At the dealership i work at, any amount over a gallon or two usually goes home with me and i save it for burning. Best thing i can think of

Burn it off in small engines that don't need high octane like lawn equipment etc .just refilter it with water separator and or let sit after draining tank and you will see it sperate again. been doing this for over 10 year. .if your worried get some high octane and mix if you want too... . put on craiglist a lot of farmers will take it . for farm equipment or a lawn company will. Find a old Oil tank they get as big as 250 gallon from a old house a lot of,people will pay you to remove it and,any oil you can resell plus get a tank for free at least. Possble cook out pit....?lol I've done it.

Or find a free boat off craiglist or rv ,bring it home siphon your gas from your into the free one then relist for free with a full tank of gas...someone will come get it.lol I've done it. Or strip a rv and you get lots of 50plus tanks of containers from it.


It's not hard getting rid of it on craiglist I've done it multiply times..

yep - craigslist -

buy the blue plastic drum for about $25.
and then advertise the gas either free or some $$ to pay for the drum.
recyclers and biofuel enthusiasts will grab the old gas and oil quickly.

Find a farmer spraying remedy and fuel oil on brush and give it to em. They will mix it with a little used motor oil and spray it out to kill brush.

Remind me not to get anything from you for free :D :D

I did have bad gas last night...... :beer:

Seriously; you might try checking with one of those petroleum reclaim companies. They might take it off your hands.
