Any reason not to mix left over Stihl, Echo and Husky premix 2 stroke oils at 50/ 50 with Maxima Formula K2 synthetic in my OPE such chainsaws, blowers , weedeaters. I've decided to run K2 full time and just want to use up remaining leftovers. I'm getting the K2 at $19 a litter vs way overpriced brand names OPE oil, so I'm going this way for now on.

Why? Just use up your existing supplies and move to the new product.

The OP may need to use 2 or all 3 leftovers just to get the proper dosage.

It's been a long time since I mixed any two stroke oils together. I did so in the 1980's for my 2 stroke bikes. It seemed to stay mixed without any issues.

I'd guess that it would work out OK, but ya never know.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

Won’t be a problem. Give it a bit of a shake if it sits for a long time.

Wouldn't it be simpler just to mix them away one at a time....its only 2-3oz per gallon

Depends on the application- in my case I had to premix about 15-18 gallons for my Yamaha Waverunner. But in general I would say its fine to mix them together.

I did it several times when I changed brands. I just made sure I had the mix ratio that I wanted.
