You can recycle lipos at cell phone stores, and nicad/nimh's at radioshack. For free. But I thought about touching one off to watch myself.

A little bit in the tank will carry the accumulated water out of the engine when the fuel's burned. Just be sure to burn ALL the fuel in the tank. Don't let it sit for any length of time, as the alcohol will draw more water out of the air and into the fuel. All the steel and brass parts in your mower carb and fuel tank will corrode.

just dump it in your driveway, and if you wanna see something cool just light it on fire.

Lol if your going to burn it dont poor it on a fire

I, uhhhhh, did that with a traxxas 20 percent (the square aluminum cans) i wasnt thinking at all and just poured like 1/4 that was left on the bottom. NOT a good idea Next thing i know im deaf and it broke a fence post 30 feet behind me. Yes it shot across the yard.

Please dont pour it down the drain it kills poor ducks

So I guess pouring it in your EX's gas tank would be wrong..

I use it as a trail, leading up to unused old gunpowder I don't need.

Two problems solved.
