|TomDevlin||You hit the nail on the head. The guy who drained the tank put 14 gallons in his pickup. He said it smoked and didn't run too well. Not sure how diluted he made it. I brought home 20 gallons that I'll sell cheap!|

|coaststrom||It'll run in an older gas vehicle just fine if your repair facility hasn't filled theirs with it yet.|

I can only think of two issues that would make this amount of contaminated fuel a problem for you...
1.) You can't figure out how to dispose of it without getting into trouble for an EPA violation.
2.) You can't bear to see the waste of a costly product.
My advice... Be a good Samaritan!
Late at night pour a gallon or two into each of your neighbor's parked cars. Shouldn't take long to quietly get rid of your stagnating EPA problem, and you will be slightly extending each of your neighbor's fuel economy.
It's a win-win solution.

Well, it will burn in a carb type car for sure. Don't know about fuel injected. I had a 454 Chevy truck. Late one evening coming home I pumped about a 1/2 tank of diesel into it. 20 gallon tank. Crud.
As it was a carb motor I figured it would start with the pure gas in the float bowl and the line from pump to carb. As I would have to drain tank to fix I figured what the heck lets see if it would run and for how far. I waited until nothing was coming and started it, through it into drive and went. When the gas/diesel mixture hit the 454 you could tell it, but it kept running-not real good but it would run 55 ok I drove it to the next town about 35 miles and pulled in and filled the tank with gas. Never shut it off as i did not figure it would restart. At 7mpg that was 5 gallons. It ran better so I drove it about 55 miles to next town and did agin and soon we were back to normal.
I know for sure a 1974 454 Chevy pickup will run on a 50/50 gas diesel mixture. I truly believe that if it would burn that truck would run on it.

I had a senior moment
and I'm not quite a senior yet (56). I put a new chain on the bike last weekend. Clearing up the tools that get scattered around, I found the unopened packet of grease that comes with the master link. (insert appropriate emoticon here). Apperently I forgot to grease the link before I assembled it and crimped the rivets. Had to order a new master link.
