I have an old metal 5 gallon gas tank. That was used up to not to long ago. Then the outboard that we had it on we no longer use. Now I want to use it with a diffent outboard but it is about 1/4 of the way full with the wroung oil mixter. How do I get it out with making a mess.

Check with your local marinas about fuel disposal. We offer the service at $.75 a gallon and I am sure others around the USA do the same.

If ya paid attention in yer math class and gots a calic-ulator ya can figure 'bout how much erl to put in wid da new gas to get pretty dern close. At da end o'the day, yer not likely to do a bit o'harm to run a li'l-too-rich mixcha true yer new motor 'less its's a 4-stroke.

The recycling place at our county landfill takes old fuel or premix. I had about 30 gallons I had to dispose of and called the county waste management office. I had to take it to the landfill site and dump it into a container similar to the used oil containers. Most of the gas I had was in six gallon cans, but I could have poured it fronm a tank just as easily. It was free of charge.
