I had posted my question on a few forums
and received many helpful tips. The most common opinion was that if your fuel is old, mix it with new gas in a 5:1 ratio (new to old) and use it with confidence. If you suspect water in the fuel, you can siphon off the good gas from the top as water will settle out to the bottom of the container. Me, I wasn't too comfortable using mixed gas in my outboard
, but I would have probably used it in my truck or lawn equipment
if I didn't have so much as to make handling it a pain. I just gave away the entire barrel.
