Is is safe to put it in the gas tank of my truck or car?
Not unless it's carbureted with no cat...I'm curious though, what is this stale mix you speak of? Every time I mix a fresh 2 gallon batch, I take my ported saws out and magically there's no fuel leftover shortly thereafter...
To be honest, between the saws, weedeater and leaf blower I don’t have gas go stale. I usually get 3 gallons at a time and it’s gone in 3 months or less. I wouldn’t dump a large quantity of “stale” fuel into anything at one time. Smaller amounts would be fine in your vehicle or lawn tractor.
If it's non ethanol I've used it 9 months old
I date my fuel - mark the date purchased on a tag on the can.
After 30 days, It gets poured into the gas tank in the car. 1/2 gallon of 50:1 mixed with another 9.5 gallons of gas works out to 1,000:1. I don't think the car notices.
If the fuel is several years old (say, discovered in an old saw at a garage sale), or if you have a lot, you can take it to a household hazardous waste site.
Burn it in the generator or kill wasps with it
I dump it in the neighbors yard.
Like I would be shocked.
Yeah, I hear you there. I'm kind erratic in my use. I had about 5 gallons of no-E mix this summer, but broke my foot so no OPE for me. Now its 3-5 months old and I still have almost 4 gallons left.
I have non ethenol 6 months old i only mix a gallon at a time
Put in a machine you are not too worried about like and old lawn mower or something.
I run mine in lawn mower or log splitter. Mix a little fresh gas with it if it smokes to much won’t hurt anything.
Like others stated stale goes in law mower or cheap weed eater?
Unknown gas oil from unknown buyers goes in drain pan an used to kill weeds and start fires (outside).
I dont even put it in lawnmower or my weedeater or blower i use chit like round up oil makes gas stick to weeds.in grove days we would mix diesel to roundup sas a sticking tack agent
Specialy high octane and good synthetics pour on the rocks and drink it.chace with a coke
I dump it in my 62 year old tractor, she eats anything. That being said, I use stabilizer in all my fuel and never have problems with it going stale.
Mix with diesel for drip torch fuel.
I've got an old Ferguson TO 20 and a 1962 Jeep CJ 5 that will burn anything .probably run on kerosene .
I had a two liter coke bottle almost full once (clean gas that was just a little stale), I poured it in my car gas tank (2013 model) when it was almost full. It never missed a lic and that was 50,000 miles ago.
