I went to do a fire drill on the farm on the weekend and tried to kick over the fire pump. I’ve been slack and let it sit for a year, and needless to say it took a lot of coaxing and there was a lot of stalling irrespective of throttle and choke control. So my initial conclusion is that the fuel needs to be replaced. So I have a few litres of old fuel that I can’t burn, can’t pour down a drain, and leaves me with the reluctant options of either letting it evaporate [potentially dangerous] or just pouring it onto a patch of weeds. Do the oil disposal points at tips take old fuel?
