Say for instance a person, or I for instance, needed to properly, within all environmental and legal means wanted to get rid of approximately 65 gallons of 2-stroke oil / gasoline mix??

How would one go about doing that??

Here is the scenerio, up to 65 gallons of gas/oil mix, sitting for approximately 3 years..... I don't think I should try to use it...

I would use it in a lawnmower etc. Oil mixed in gas will not hurt a thing. I would burn it in my truck if i thought the gas was still good. Mix a liittle at a time with new gas like half tank to half tank.

put it in gas cans and mix it with your gas in your truck five gallons at a time unless you have a bunch of money you want to spend on disposal fees.

Mix it with new gas and burn it in your vehicles. Just a little extra lube for the valve guuides. Back when I mixed gas/oil, if it didn't get used in a few months, I burned it in my truck. I once burned 20 gals. of gas that had been sitting for 8 yrs. in a car my brother was given, 2-3 gallons per tank. Sure beats trying to dispose of it. Jack

Give that man a ceegar, just maybe a little less than half and half, but the lawnmower is the best idea. If is is a bit gunky, run it through a couple of layers of cotton towels.

find some landscapers and tell them to get it out. I am sure they would use it.
I like this idea.....I think this would be the easiest fix and certainly the quickest. The heck with storing it and messing up my ride....just in case.

Running oil and gas in anything with a catalytic converter is asking for trouble. Gas will evaporate in any open container and with this heat, do that very fast.

get with a garage or a oil distributor for disposal. I like my Dixie chopper and other lawn tools and would not do that at all.

I have gotten rid of the gas, a buddy of mine has a tree trimming service and will use it in his chainsaws. BTW.... Luckily I only got 10 gallons out and pulled the sending unit for the gas gauge, roughly 3/4" in the bottom. Tomorrow I am going to try to blow the rest out with an air compressor..... Thanks for the suggestions!!!!
