no lawnmoer, no friends want it, I cant because i dont have tubing.

I lit some of it on fire, but i guess the containter i was burning in had some oil in it... that was fun... but in other news i lit my back yard on fire.

3 gallons is alot to get rid of. I know most autoparts stores will take used oil and other fluids like that, gas burns, not sure why they wouldn't take that as well. Worth a try.

Pour a little each day into a flat pan and let it evaporate.

But, unless you want to make a political statement, don't smoke near the pan.

i shouldn't tell you what I do with my used oil then.

and maybe they should figure out how to solve my problem of sitting in traffic for an hour and a half each day to travel 20 miles.

coolant can be flushed down the sewer, meaning pour it down the drain or into the toilet and flush it.
NOT the storm drains though.

duh: http://www.gasblender.com/

evaporating it is probably the least impact on the environment and definitely easiest. burning it in a CLEAN coffee can isn't too hard. it'll burn slowly.

or make a solvent tank.
