my old 4runner burns most old fuel without any problems just add a little 93 and some seafoam and filter it through with some paint strainers.

This reminds me of a bit of advice a fellow board member here, freely advertises..."Never argue with an idiot, they'll drag you down to their level & beat you with experience."

Catalytic converter, does that help your infantile mind phuck-tard? Burning gas into the air is a helluva lot better than pouring it onto the ground jackass. You're allegedly a boater, where does ground water end up? Yup, that's right... THE LAKE/OCEAN, where WE boat!

Complain about semantics and be persnickety prick. The bottom line is you were wrong, you're embarrassed, and you're picking on anything you can get your hands on to save face. At the end of the day you're just making yourself look more dumb.

Only on OSO that a simple question about pumping out old gas can turn into a sword fight. Put'em away and zip your flies back up boys.

nice guy and next to the Pre school too right ?

Had an old primer bulb, so tried that this year.

%$%##% anti-siphon valve cut that plan short.

The "epa" has destroyed boating given us spotted owls, manitee zones, no wake areas and all the other junk, if they want us driving cars that get 30+ mpg what do you think there feeling of a offshore boats is that gets 1 mpg

Put the one end of the hose deep in the fuel tank...hook up the wires to the battery....and get some cans ready...lol.

If you really feel creative...you can hook up a nice switch in the positive wire.


or the shop Vac
