Veteran fisherman... what are some of the best options to do with 25+ gallons of five year old boat gas in a boat I just purchased?

I am sure some of your have run into this problem in past years.

Thank you ever so much for any feedback.

any shop with a waste oil burner (shop heater) can take it. Before I retired we had one installed. It could burn somewhere about 6% gasoline without any problems (I forget the exact %). Ours has a 300 gallon holding tank. 25 gallons would be a welcome free "dump".

DO NOT USE IN ANY CAR WITH COMPUTER CHIP. I was told it messes with the computer. Just what I heard..... but enough for me not to dump my old gas in my truck.

Use it a gallon or three at a time in your car.

I had a very similar situation last year. My neighbor had a very large quantity of Very old gas that was mixed at a 50:1 oil ratio in multiple cans. He said you can have the cans if you take the gas so I did. I consumed all the gas in my lawn mower. Yes the mower smoked a bit more and I also diluted the gas with some fresh stuff but it worked.

I hope this helps. Smile

PM me if you want me to take it.

I just called my auto repair shop and he was happy to take it. I'm not sure what he did with it though.
