What have you all seen happen if oil / gas is accidentally used in your standard flat head economy B&S lawn mower ?

Thanks , :-)

Use it all the time. Like to keep the gas fresh in the little 2 strokers so if the mix gets more than a month old it goes into the riding mower. No issues and same goes for the mixed outboard motor fuel.

No worries many do it on purpose. I used to run 50/1 in a 4 stroke honda 70, no change in performance. I only did it because all my gas cans were mixed for chainsaws.

no problems, if done too much you will get carbon buildup on everything. all over valves, plug, exhaust..a few times wont hurt.

I've done it for years, whenever I have extra 2-cycle gas lying around. I just put some Techron in it later to keep the carbon buildup away.

I do the same thing. If the 2-stroke mix is getting near end-of-season and I have nothing for it to go in, it gets used in the next piece of 4-stroke OPE I have to run before winter. I try not to run it full-strength, like half straight gas, half 2-stroke mix if I'm able. If there's still some left over, it goes in my 1985 Ford pickup which doesn't really care what goes in it, within reason.

The last construction company I worked we mixed all the gas for small equipment because we were afraid the workers would put straight gas in the saws.
Never had a issue with any of the Generators or pumps that were four strokes. Probably even good for them.

Oil/gas mix doesn't seem to clog up the carb jets over winter.
Also will give the valves some extra lubrication.


There's no such thing as:
Too big of a battery,
Too large of a gas tank,
or too loud of a horn,
or too bright headlights.

Nothing will happen....since almost all modern 2stroke oils are low ash or ashless technology....

Worst case you foul the plug over time.
