    Man, I know you guys are gonna ream me for the title of this post. Haha. Now to the question. I drained the tank of my 84 Trans Am into a bucket and now I don't know what to do with it. I was gonna pour it down the sewer, but the neighbors would have a fit. Can't throw it over the fence, I have neighbors on all sides. Don't want to pour it in the grass, kind of want it to keep growing. Anybody have any solutions? I'm about to have a big ass bonfire in the street if I can't figure this out soon!

    You could put it into a sealed container and wait until the local FD has a chemical disposal day/weekend, seems like most do, where they take your unwanted or used up chemicals and dispose of them properly.

    Or you might try just letting it evaporate. I'd say it'd be better for that to happen than for it to be in the ground. Just my opinion though... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Might call around to a few shops/scrap yards, etc, and see if they can help you out with disposal of it if there's not too much... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Pour it through a pair of panti hose into another container and use for lawnmower or something. Pour it in a ford or jeep.

    Will filtering it work? This stuff looks like coffee.

    It should work in a "wide tolerance" engine like a lawnmower if it's filtered.

    Take it to a gas station. They can pour it in their used fluids container or suggest something better.

    Some gas stations will take it for you for proper disposal.

    siphon your neighbors gas out and replace it with that.
