Can anyone give me information on where can dispose of some bad gas? Or who can drain the tank?

Do like I did, put in in a 5 gallon gas tank and put it in front of the garage. Someone is going to steal it.

Why would you ask that question in fishing reports?

Because most people fish in boats and you ask questions to get feed back from people who have had simular issues. Now being that according to some of your questions you have posted in the past your looking for your 1st boat? I assure you when you have issues like dealing with the new blended crappy gas they sell these days you may post a question or two. This is what this site is all about. Information on more than just the best fishing areas but people helping other people with boat,engine,trailer issues etc.
so the question is not where the question is posted but do you have any helpful advice?

Bad gas...
I usually just pour it in a 5 gallon bucket and set it out where it won't get knocked over. It will evaporate in about a day or less depending on the temp.

unburned hydrocarbons are a prime source of air pollution.Your parish government should be able to advise you.

Add some Stabil and burn it in your lawn mower.

If there is no water in it just add it to your truck or car 5 gallons per fillup until it's gone.

Do Not add gas to your car/truck that has been treated with Marine (Blue) Stabil. That stuff is so strong it will ruin the O2 sensors

Call your nearest office of Louisiana DEQ, they usually can tell you if anyone in your area offers disposal. Here in Lafayette The Prop Shop will dispose of gas for $1.75 a gallon. When I lived in Lake Charles I called the DEQ and there were no local facilities that took gas so they recommended that I line a large garbage can with 2 heavy duty trash bags, pour in a whole bunch of kitty litter then pour in the gas (making sure there was enough Kitty Litter to soak it all up) then tie it and tape it to seal it good and throw it away. That was a few years ago though so I don't know if they still go recommend going that route.

where I live Lafourche parish they tell us to do that with paint we want to throw away, then they will pick it up! so I guess its probably still ok.

Not sure if you are in Jefferson Parish or not, but the parish allows you to dump up to 5 gallons per day. You would need to go either the Metaire or Marrero locations.
