How do you dispose of old gasoline? I had some old gas in my snowblower and I want to get rid of it properly.

How old are we talking?
I would say if it's not more than 2 years old you should be able to use it. If it has particles in it just pour it through a strainer. If there is water in it then the water will settle at the bottom. You should be able to carefully pour the gasoline out without pouring the water. You can also mix the old gas with new gas.

Or just burn something. Try not to pour it down the sewer though.

Pouring it in drain/garbage never even came across my mind. It is 2-cycle oil/gas mix which I can't use in anything otherwise.

Pour it into your car, unless you have 50 galons of it you will never notice anything, or better yet pour it into Sara's car then you will really not notice it.

I think we wanted to race the GTI vs. Passat and wanted some extra insurance w/the 2 cycle oil in yours.
