What are you doing with your separator drainage?

I figured I should start draining my water separator, but have been discouraged from doing so because I haven't really known what to do with the drained fuel/water once I empty into a water bottle.
What're you guys doing with it?

Drink it, it will put some hair on your chest

But i would dump it into a bigger container and once you get enough bring it into autozone they take used fluids.

Also makes a good weed killer

I use mine to help burn limbs and debris while I'm clearing my property getting ready to build a house.

I actually drained some over the past weekend and used it to motivate the camp fire since the wood was a little damp from the rain.

Every drain has gone right back in the tank after sitting for a couple of days. I have not once found any water in it. I even second guessed myself once and used water finding paste and it didn't turn colors.

I have not found any water in mine and I usually pour it back in the tank. I always drain into a clear container so it's easy to tell. I even put a drop of water into one drain specimen so I could see what it would look like if there was any water.

I wondered the other day when I was draining mine if anyone was brave enough to do this.

When I don't detect any water in the fuel specimen, (never have) it goes into the old tractor.

I collect it in an old rotella bottle and when it's full just dump it off at work.

Not worth it to save 14 cents of diesel and put it back in my tank, IMO.

I'm sure it's more about convenience than saving a few pennies. If you drained it into a clean clear bottle and can visibly inspect it there's no risk involved.
