Default Bad gas

No silly not that kind...
Draining bad gasoline (premix even) from my dirt bike to get ready for the weekend. Usually there isn't much... not this time. Did a web search & got nuttin'. Who accepts stale fuel?

I usually just mix it into my 5 gallon used oil bucket. You can hardly tell as long as it's less than 50-50 gas to oil.

The fluid recovery people don't like flammables in the used oil because they often sell it to be burned it in the tourist trains and those don't like explosions so much. Or so I have been told, dunno. Can it be diluted with good gas and used in the lawn mower or something? Starting your BBQ charcoal?

Probably so, but I figure that when I dump my 5 gallons of gas/oil into their 500 gallon vat, it will be diluted enough to never have an effect.

Unless it has floaty chunks in it that will plug a filter, I pour it in the tractor and add enough fresh fuel to make sure it runs OK, seems to have worked OK so far.

Yeah, spoke with Tramontana and he just mixes it in - weakly - to his vehicle fuel to dilute it.

I suppose the premix will do a peach of a job lubing my 97's top end...

I put it on my firewood (its not much). Not sure if that's good or bad but it starts it really well even after a good rainstorm.
