    I've disposed of old chainsaw fuel by pouring it( less than two gallons ) in an open five gallon pail and just letting it evaporate. I tried separating the water out with one of those "water separating" funnels - it didn't work well, the oil in the chainsaw fuel mix sort of gummed things up.

    Matches and gasoline doesn't sound like a good idea, but what's the process? Does this work? Does the sand act like a slow wick for the fumes? Ratio of sand to gas?
    Don't the fumes just explode when you approach with a match?

    A 5 gallon steel bucket will contain the fumes pretty well especially on a very cold day. Then stand upwind and toss a match at it, it may take several tries to get the match to the right location where the gas/air mixture is ok for a burn.

    I keep lidded 5 gallon buckets that hold primarily waste oil. Any waste gas also gets dumped in. Then I burn it on brush piles.
