Selling a few fuel tanks.

One had a bit more fuel than I thought so now I have about 60 gallons of diesel that is old and I caught in not real clean containers.

Is there something I can do with this fuel?

Any use that you can suggest?

Put it on Craigslist, someone will filter it and use it.

I figured I would have fuel for some fires. But even my pyromaniac son said how are you going to burn all that fuel???

Works great at keeping weeds down, kills fire ants, yellow jackets and makes wet wood burn. Probably kills toenail fungus as well.

I would expect it have some value to a bio-fuel maker.

Build a dripper in a wood stove. Lots of heat and no fuss.

Fuel oil burner?


Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

There is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.

I’d filter it and use it my space heaters if I had it. A chit load cheaper than kerosene.

Run it through a Ford powerstroke

There are two places in our nearby town that takes old diesel fuel, hydraulic fluid, old engine oil, etc and use it in their EPA certified heaters. One is a NAPA store and the other is a large tool store. I take all of our old hydraulic fluid in 5 gallon cans to the tool place.
