What do you do with your old RV antifreeze?

Does RV antifreeze have a shelf life? Can used RV antifreeze be saved for the next season? Any green way to get rid of the stuff?

Danged good question.

I guess you could save it and use it as a gut cleanout before your next colonoscopy. It's a whole lot cheaper than the stuff from the pharmacy and contains some of the same ingredients.

But I am looking forward to less drastic measures. After all, using is for colonoscopy prep is neither recycling nor green disposal.

Would it be a better to do the colon thing first, drain, and then winterize?

Looks like maybe the beginning of a great debate on the level of Henshens vs Dexters.

Check your local laws. In our area you can dump it down the toilet and the local sewer treatment plant takes care of it. If your on septic thats a horse of a different color.

Your anti-freeze will turn. Once used it gets contaminated. When it's in your car or truck its heated and will kill most things.

Oh, I suspect you'd need to ask the doctor about that one! Mine, I think, would want to me to drain first, then the dirty colon deed, then rewinterization.
