Around here, unused gasoline has to be disposed of at a hazardous waste facility. Our local sanitary landfill has a "hazardous waste disposal" day twice a month in the summer/fall, closed in winter. Here, it's free. Other places tend to require a fee.

100LL is pretty stable. I might just meter a gallon into each fill up.

Lawn mowers and stuff
 
I run 100LL in my lawn equipment,mowers,weedeaters,chainsaws,log splitter you name it. Never gums up over winter,ect...and both my Harleys..they love it.

Assuming that it is really too old to use (AVGAS lasts a LONG time…..), try calling your local volunteer fire department - they might have a place they store flammable for future use in training burns….. at least we used to way back in the day! It was a good way to get rid of stuff no one wanted dumped in the creek!

Burn it!

Yes, as mentioned already run it some farm equipment or motorcycle or anything w/o a catalytic converter. It's great stuff and the equipment will love it. Find some farmer to help you if necessary.

I bought a dormant Warrior, tanks were half full- was told it sat for 13 years- lawnmower never complained!

I'll pick it up and dispose of it for you next time I'm in Olathe visiting my parents...
