Disposing of a large quantity of fuel
I picked up a 1998 Seadoo XPL as a project ski. It has a full tank of fuel and it has to be at least 3 years old and might have water in it since the engine took on water. I know I have read people using in their vehicles by diluting it with fresh gas. Are there other alternatives? I would hate to mess up the engine in any of my vehicles. We are taking about 13 gallons of fuel.

Highly suggest you do not put fuel in a vehicle that has water in the fuel. You will be paying someone to drain it and clean out your system.
NO idea how to get rid of the gas.

Try calling your local township and see if they have a hazmat drop off site. I know here in MN we have several areas in just our county alone that will accept stuff like that to be disposed of.

I gave Toyota $300 to fix my truck after I put gas in it that contained water. They were happy too. So if you HAVE to use it in your equipment, keep it out of the expensive ones. Yes, I felt like a dumbass.

DO NOT RUN IT IN YOUR VEHICLE.
Most automotive shops will dispose of waste oil-not old fuel. The loophole is that most waste oil already has some fuel in it, so the trick is to put waste oil and fuel together in containers and just dump them off at a place that excepts waste oil.
In Texas, fuel has to be manifested as hazardous waste, so thats how we get around it.
