[Mgs] [Healeys] Old Gas

Gas over 1 year old can cause real problems. 8 years old could be a 
disaster. Call around to disposal businesses and find one that disposes old 
oil, antifreeze etc. Whatever you do don't put it in an engine that you care 
about. I've had about 6 of these to redo in the past few years. Sticks the 
intake valves and then the rest goes.
