Re: Old gas

Note that most marinas' insurance companies forbid empty fuel tanks for safety reasons (a tank full of fumes is a bomb). Not sure where you're doing this, but it can be hazardous.

Be careful and good luck.

Re: Marinette purchase advice

You won't believe this, but the standard body shop technique for de-stinking a burnt interior of a car is to wash everything with kerosene. The kero stink goes away after a while, taking the burnt odor with it.
