Once the dirt and stuff is out of it, there's nothing in the gas that will coke an injector any faster than 'clean' gas straight out of the pump. All that's missing from it is the normally low spirit content anyway.

At this point, I could mix it with some methanol and 'renew' it, but I'm not buying a 55gal drum of meth to do that when I know it works fine as-is.
