    Can you have bon fires out that way? We usually will use some old gas to get it started.

    Unless you have other crud in there, I let the can sit a while to settle water out and then pour it into a jar to make sure I didn't get any water with it. I then just pour it into one of my trucks. If you get some water in the jar then pour just the gas into another jar and the water back into the gas can until you have essentially only water left.

    Next time you run into some scrubs, offer to fill up their mowers.

    Here, you can take your used motor oil to the gas station and they will dispose of. Possibly they will to the same for you old gas?

    no gas station is going to want gas with water in it. Although its only 3 gallons, i doubt any of them will take it. when i have left over gas, i dump it in the tanks at my dads mobil station, but it doesnt have water in it.
