Yup like Running Hot said. I got a small electric pump, hooked it up to my fuel tank and filled up a 5 gallon jug. Filed up my car, then my wifes car then stated to fill up cars in the parking lot. Good day for a lot of folks!

If it is bad gas you can have some fun with a BOMB fire.

Even old gas will work in most lawnmowers, etc. Unless there is water or excessive gunk in it you can probably use it for something (or worst comes to worst, burn it like Audio said). You really don't want a service to come take it out. It is WAY too expensive. They wanted $80 bucks to show up, and $7.XX per gallon to take it out. My friend called them because he was worried about his old gas gunking up his carb, but the final price of taking out all of the old gas would have cost more than replacing the carb with a newly rebuilt carb.

FWIW, we ended up cutting his fuel line and temporarily installing an electric fuel pump that I had laying around. After we were done we put a fuel filter in to splice it back together.

I'm sure the EPA would frown on that. He's lucky he never got fined. Not everything in gas evaporates. I'm sure he's contaminated a good deal of material.

I had 40 gallons of turpentine in the Monza when I first got it. Scored a 45 gallon drum. Picked up one those super cheap pumps that run off your drill at H/D. Then called the local dump and asked about their hazardous waste days. Pumped it out and ten dropped it off. Pretty painless.

Burning it is no different than running it through your car (sans the cadillac converter). Pouring it into the ground is a huge mess that requires extensive and costly excavation to get rid of it.

I use an extra holley electric fuel pump we had laying around. You can buy cheap ones from summit racing. They are worth it to have around. Hook up two long hoses to it...and some long wires with big alligator clips on the ends. 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.
