Dispose of bad gasoline

I need to get rid of about 12 gallons of water filled gasoline from my old pontoon.  Is there a service around LC that can help me with this?

The fire departments are trained in disposal and must have a resource for disposal.

I had a lot more one time. About 60 gal of 3-5 year old gas. I ran it though one of those water separating funnels and then put 3-5 gallons at a time into my car's 20 gallon tank depending on how much fresh gas was present. Burned fine and saved $$$ that summer!

Does it have oil premixed? We used to burn last year's boat gas in the lawnmower.

Did you find a place to dispose of gas or are you going to use it.

2WeeksOld recommended Ross Petroleum in Somerset and I contacted them.  They have pump out service, but I plan to haul to them first chance I get.  Charge will be $1.45/gal which I think is reasonable.  JSG, the gas does have oil mixed with it, but the mechanic warned us it has a LOT of water in it.  This pontoon has probably spent its 23 year life outside and the plastic onboard tank is shot.  

I plan to pull the boat out on some quiet weekday in a few weeks.  I will share the final outcome.
