What is the proper way to dispose of old methanol ?
car show guy.
is it contaminated? does it still float right?
Use it to kill co19-I9- check your local sewer authority you might be able to flush it with water
Use an old turkey fryer pot or a cut off drum or canning pot, pour a gallon or so of the alky in and set a match to it and enjoy a nice soft blue "campfire". Be careful though as the container gets very hot. JW
How much? 5-10 gallons or 50 gallons?
If it is a small amount pour it out onto a cement pad or big drain pan & let it evaporate.

I just burn old methanol in my truck,mix it with some gas. I have a 2012 so its flex fuel, up to 85 percent. I had some that was almost 10 years old, engine didn't know the difference. Mixed it 50/50.
how long will methanol keep in a sealed drum
Sounds like a chance for "Hey y'all, watch this".
I second what Bill mentioned. The methanol might actually still be "good" despite its age, depending upon how it was stored and what it was stored in.
I've seen it sit for over 5 years, and still float perfect. we ran it, and never experienced an issue
use it to warm up your engine, drain it, fill with new methanol and make your run.
