    What to do with old nitro fuel?

    I recently sold my Revo 3.3 and I have about a half of gallon of old nitro fuel left. How, what should I get rid of it? Thanks

    Your local Hazmat Waste Facility will take it.

    If you reside in El Cerrito, Hercules, Pinole, Richmond, San Pablo and the unincorporated West County areas (Crockett, El Sobrante, Port Costa, Rodeo, & Tormey) you may drop off your household hazardous waste for FREE at the The West Contra Costa County Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Proof of residency is required. If you are a resident of Kensington, go here for further information.

    Or try to sell it locally. If it is still fairly fresh someone will pay maybe $5-10 for a half gallon.

    or just give it away to someone who uses that kind or will soon be in nitro
    All I need now is to set a new lap record.

    There were several that responded with very dangerous ways to dispose of the fuel so I've had to clean up the thread. Fire is not something to play with. It needs to be respected and left in controlled and confined areas.

    I am sure the local hobby shop will take it off your hands.
