Bad gas

anyone in the Seattle area know where i can dump about 25 gallons of bad gas out of my MH. the gas in my tank for the gen has been in there for along time and i don't want to use it as the dealer had put in a new pump and re did the carb on it and the mechanic said it was not a good idea. so now i need to find a place to dump and get fresh gas to use. any help please. thanks.

You should be able to dump bad gas in the oil recovery container at your recycling center.

That or check around your local area for car repair garages that use waste oil heaters, more do than don't and they will take your waste oil and that oil gas to burn for heating fuel free of charge.

A lot of truck (large) repairs garages use waste oil heaters as well.

Barrel it then draw off a little at a time and mix it with liquid hand soap, then go camping outside of King county and use it to help start wet firewood.

Shame, we used to make that soap "napalm" when we were kids for fire starter. You would light a safe distance away from it and then toss it onto it so to avoid the WHOOSH that it usually gave (We tended to use too much at one time).

But, you could coat a couple of soaked logs with that stuff and in no time they'd be dry and burning .

I had about 10 gallons of "vintage fuel" and gave it to a farmer friend who used it to start fires in his orchard. But I would think the waste disposal place would know what to do with it. Oh the smell of old gas..........

Don't go mixing gasoline with used waste oil for a heater. Good way to burn down a house or garage. Have seen it happen. Please don't knowingly put anyone in that danger.

Look up a waste oil recycler in your area. A repair shop may be able to tell you who picks up their waste oil. The recycler that picked up at my shop would take old gas also.

They keep all the containers you bring it in. so you will have to pump. Pick up som 5 gallon buckets with lids. They don't take it in larger than 5 gallon sizes. Check their times too. They are close monday tues I think.... but check.

My recycle and trash drop off point in NC has folks racing up to you as you approach the waste oil container. They are adamant about you NOT mixing oil and gas, and dumping it in their container-
