Hey,

A buddy of mine has an older boat (not Parker, but we like him anyway) and he wasn't able to take it out for a couple of years while his wife dealt with an illness. He has about 80 gallons of fuel (gasoline), it was stablized, that is 3 years old. Does anyone know of a service that can come to him, or he can trailer his boat to have that fuel removed? His tank is only 113g.

Dave

We had a similar issue after a Hurricane Charlie with a damaged boat. We pumped out gas and took it county haz mat waste center for free recycling.

My buddy contacted local haz mat people, they will take 15 gallons per week, so he is going to start with that.

Have it tested might be good enough to burn in a car/truck

i just removed about 50 gallons of gas from the boat. maybe 1 to 2 years old of gas? put it in our trucks and worked fine. just syphon it out.

If you have access, disconnect the fuel line at the priming bulb and extend it out to a container below the level of the tank.
Pump the priming bulb to get fuel flowing and it will siphon naturally.

If the fuel had been stabilized, it's probably still good. Use it in your car or truck and enjoy!
