    I've got about 20 gallons of old/stale gas that I need to dispose of. Any suggestions?

    I would put 1 or 2 gallons at a time in my pick up and fill it up with fresh gas and run it till it's gone
  4. I'm with the fool. Put it in the truck, couple gallons at a time.

    i like to put it down the drain. j/k

    running it in conjunction with some fresh gas is fine. their is really no way to dispose of gas, unless you turn it over to a dump or somthing.

    Hmmm. If it still burns, it ain't stale:D

    Don’t just pour it down the drain, bad for the environment. As pointed out I would run it in your truck. Make sure to use a little of it at a time mixing in the fresh gas.

    Well, if you don't have any thristy problem pets that need to go bye bye, then I would have to agree that using a galon or so at a time in your truck would be the way to go.

    If it Will burn it's not stale, Put it in your truck. If it wont burn Don't put it in anything that you don't want to have problems with!
