Default Old gas tank question

Hi all, my 56 210 wagon gas tank has some REALLY bad gas (about 20 years old) in it. I bought a new tank, but I don't know where to dispose of the old gas and gastank. I live in a pretty populated area so a big old mushroom cloud coming from the back yard may be a problem. Any ideas?

call your city or county offices or fire department they should be able to guide you in the right direction. most communities have collection facilities on certain days of the month.

You should find the correct way of having it disposed of, down this way we`ve had folks dispose of their good any way they could which in most cases is not the right way

How much gas it is.... Dump it into a clean oil catch pan and let it evaporate...., rinse the old tank with water before discarding.

Our local O"reillys parts store takes all kinds of recycle,oil,cans of paint etc.Ask if you put it in a safe container if they can take it. Another thought is to add half a gallon to a full tank until you burn it all.Got a old lawn mower? run some through it.Mine gets no miles to the gallon so it would go quick.

Put it in a container, write on it with a marker pen "Free Gas" and stick it out on the verge. I'm sure someone will pick it up.

Bad call.......Roos don't drink bad gas.

As to the tank it's good for scrap.

I have ben told that if you punch holes in the tank the scrap yard will take it,I would fill it with water first. As for the gas I have not got a clue. Other than a parts store or ask your local Fire department. I have always used it in my lawn mower a little at a time.
