Fuel line rated for use with nitromethane only, and to see if the fuel is any good give the bottle a little shake and look for bubbles. If it bubbles up pretty good then its fine. If the fuel line deteriated inside the jug you may want to filter the fuel into another jugIf you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

I ended up with a bad gallon once and what I did was add a little to each new gallon of fuel I bought. Maybe add 6 ounces to each new gallon or so, it will be fine. Basically what youll be getting out of it is oilIf you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.

Yup, at least it wont go to waste. Just dont forget to run the fuel through a coffee filter or somthing first. If you dont do it, it may give you alot of problemsIf you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.
