What to do with old 2 stroke gas?

I have about 10 liters of two stroke gas mixed 50:1 with 94 thats around 4 months old.

Has anyone ever just dumped their old 2 stroke gas into their cars?

buy a moped and get that ratio to around 32:1 lol. I wouldnt risk using that in my car...It's about $10 worth of gas. If you no longer have a 2-stroke, find a neighbor that does. Or add more gas to it and use with your lawn mower, not your expensive car.

I suppose it might be ok to slowly add it a full tank on your car, like a quart at a time and it would be really diluted but not worth it imo.

Give it to a neighbor who has a gas lawnmower. No way would i stick it in my car.
An OLD car pre injector would be no problem
