Default Fuel Disposal

What's the best and safest way to dispose of nitro fuel? I have some fuel from last Sept in my garage and I want to get rid of it. Even though it's been sealed (red cap on top of the opening under the cap), I don't know if it's going to be good come springtime. I'd rather get new fuel for my new engine I have to break in, than risk ruining it with bad fuel.

any help would be appreciated

No it wasn't that bad.
I just revved heaps more and smelt sweet [exhaust ]
Then came to a sudden stop as the piston melted in the barrel and seazed.
It was an old mower so it did not really matter,but it was great fun.
