^^ Freaking comedian! Badda Bing!!! :laugh:

Try the landfill, a lot have hazmat drop off areas where you can dump old paint, gas, oil etc. At least around here they do not sure about Philly.

I do know the cops arrest you for open carrying even though it's legal in Philly. Saw a story recently about that.

Use it to light your old tires on fire. I usually do this on Earth Day.

F that, if it's just a gallon or two and your truck's tank is near full it won't
make hardly a difference, any old gas I just dump it in there.

If you have any "low places" where mosquito's tend to bred, that's your best place.

The only thing I don't understand is how does one end up with old gas? Mine doesn't last long enough to get old.
I'd think you'd be ok mixing it with at least 3/4 of a tank in your vehicle.

Take it back to your local arab c-store and demand a refund. Argue there is no sign that says no returns of fuel.

How is he going to be sure he gets the right mix now? I still say that if your truck has at least 3/4 of a tank, add a gallon of the mixed gas to it. Do this at every fill up till gone. Of course you will want to run till the tank is under 1/4 to fill back up and add more of the mixed gas.
How much of this stuff could you have anyways? 1 maybe 2 gallons?
Of course, the bonfire comment makes sense too. :)

Pour it in the car/truck/mower, etc. It won't hurt a thing.

Just put it in a bucket out in the sun and let it evaporate, or just add more gas to it.....

I'd just pour it into a mower and try again. My little POS toro pretty much always gets mixed fuel as I don't carry straight gas with me. Some times I'll top it off at the pump when filling up the big mowers.

Just how off WAS the mix? Most people on here run 50:1. I run mine at 32:1, which is 4 oz./gal.. Just run it. That, or burn it in with your truck gas.

Maybe you could find out who these idiots are and give it to them:

These maroons should be charged with impersonating firemen and training officers and jailed.

You're right. They are the reason nobody likes volunteer firefighters anymore. It's no wonder every municipality is going with an all-paid staff. This way they can fire them.

:rolleyes: Figures

You know for a fact they were vollies? POC?

How many vollies\POC have been laid off and houses closed compared to career?

And maybe you could enlighten me as to what "every municipality" means? Maybe you could even list them?

More ignorance.....

This is the worst case of hose envy I've ever seen. What's the matter? Did you try to join a squad and found out they have standards for admission? Check your facts, more houses are going to two man engines and supplementing with MORE volunteers.

I didn't say I didn't like vollies. Vollies, at least in my area, have a bad rep and it's due to dumb stuff like this. But y'all are right I can't confirm they were vollies. But do you really believe this crowd is from a paid municipal dept. doing stuff like this? You really think they would be burning out of a shipping container?

First of all, I don't see anything wrong with what these guys are doing. They are doing a controlled burn for flashover training. I can tell you...I will guarantee you that was not gasoline being thrown in there. It acted more like kerosene, which is more commonly used (gasoline is never used for training purposes). When we've done flashover traing in the past, it was done aboard a semi trailer set up for this, with propane outlets (very controlled). A freaky feeling seeing the flame roll above and around you, and so hot the boots and visors were being melted. Others have done not flashover, but other live fire exercises in their towers. Fuels were used there, as well. As far as municipalities going from volunteer or poc to full time,..I've never heard of one instance, besides for growth.I DO know though, that it works the other way around. As for training? Here in Michigan, volunteers and poc go through the same rigors and testing standards as full time ff's. The NFPA and IFSTA standards are the same across the grid. FF I and II, along with several other extras (haz-mat certs, NIMS, first aid, CPR and AED, as well as a host of others) are required.

Ever hear or read NFPA 1403 for live fire training?

For starters, flammable liquids are not approved for live fire training. For the obvious reasons. Ever read the stories of the deaths and injuries that have occurred during live fire training when stupidity such as this is occurring? How about the chief and training officers who have been sentenced to jail\prison for this kind of negligence?

Another thing, using flammable liquids and throwing them into a burning room does not consist of flashover training.
