    Can't tell which jug of fuel is mixed

    I knew it eventually would happen. I premix the fuel for my gp1200. I use Amsoil interseptor which is clear. I have two identical 5 gallon jugs. One is mixed the other is not. I taged the one that was mixed. When I got to the lake the tag that I put on the mixed one is gone. Is there any way to tell which is mixed. I don't want to take a chance and ruin the engine on the GP. Also I don't want to throw away 10 gallons of premium gas. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Interceptor is golden colored. You should be able to tell if you put each in a glass container.

    I'd pour the gas in question in my Yukon and start over!

    Pour them both in a 10 gallon jug and add the appropriate amount for 5 gallons. Let me know if you find a 10 gallon jug.

    I'll send you a free AMSOIL sticker to put on your jug so this does not happen next time. I have blue jugs for straight gas and red for mix gas. I would check with AMSOIL and see if you can use the mix in your vehicle at what ratio. Tech support 1-715-399-8324

    Thanks for the replies. I'll put some in a glass jar and see if I can tell the difference. I mix 40:1 so I didn't want put it in a vehicle.

    I'd put it in your car and start over. 10 gallons of premium is cheaper than a new engine.
