Default Old Naptha Fuel

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone knows of any crafty ways to dispose of old naptha fuel? I have a near full can of it from last spring, and I don't have a fire pit, so I can't use it to start fires. I'm at a loss, does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Since you can burn gasoline in stoves, can you run your car on white gas without wrecking it?

Just use it in your stove. I've never seen a can of white gas with a expiry date on it. White gas isn't a dairy product.

Someone did tell me that as white gas ages it oxidizes into verithane (sp) or something like that?

You can run it in your car but don't.The engine preignites like a mofo.I used it to get to a gas station and had to stall the truck to turn the motor off.

It does age. You can apparently get these jelly like deposits that can clog up your jet (maybe that's what happens to Varathane when it is immersed in naptha?). But this won't be an issue a year after purchase, and when it is an issue, you can supposedly filter it through a coffee filter. I tried this with some five year old fuel a while ago, but I didn't catch any jellyfish. (the jet on my stove always clogs up, even with brand new fuel ...maybe it is already too full of Varathane )[]

On a fuel injected car the dieseling after turn off shouldn't be a problem. If it's too bad for a stove I wouldn't put it in my car anyways. Mind you, I've come accross some pretty old white gas, and it still smells the same to me.

As was said, you can just run it thru a coffee filter and get any greeblies out. Should be no problem.
