Default RC Fuel Disposal

I need help with the proper way to dispose of Nitro Fuel.

I am disabled and can no longer fly. While cleaning out my garage I found a gallon of 6 year old Byron Fuel.

Any suggestions?

Get in touch with your local waste collector and they will pick it up for free. Sorry to hear that you can't fly any more. We will all be in the same condition one of these days so you are not alone. Dan.

Pour it one your driveway and put a match to it. Then cook some hot dogs.

Glow fuel will last for years if kept sealed and out of the elements. As bhady suggested, give to a friend. Glow fuel is a terrible thing to waste!!
