While rummaging around my basement I found a can of stove fuel. Does this stuff go bad like regular gasoline?Submitted by - Don Turcotte, Dayville, CT
But it begs the question: what to do with the old stuff? It’s highly flammable, toxic, and not the type of stuff you want to dump down your pipes or into your bed of pansies. I know plenty of folks who simply drain it into their car’s fuel tanks. As long as there’s plenty of gas already in the tank to mix it with, it shouldn’t create any problems. (Cover my ass footnote: I’m not suggesting you do this and don’t blame me if your motor starts crapping out!) Your best bet is to bring it to either a gas station or your department of public works, both of whom should have tanks that you can drain your can into. Your public works office should also be able to answer questions about recycling the spent fuel cans as well.
