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.

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.

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!!!!
