I have a second hand Cub Supamatic Regal off-road. In preparing it for its first trip (which we did in January) I discovered that one of the 20 litre Gerry cans was full of diesel. I image that this has been in the can for well over a year as the previous owner hadn't used the camper for that long.

I also imagine that fuel goes off and the best thing for me to do is dispose of it.

Any comments welcome.

Use it 12 months is not long, although i would strain it with a good strainer.

If you're in doubt about the quality, don't risk it in your vehicle.

Here's a novel way to get rid of it
Your local volley Bushfire brigade may be able to use it in their firelighters when burning off. It is mixed about 10 diesel-1 petrol for these things.

Or it was when I was active in my local Brigade a good few years back.
