Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

Hi Mike

I agree that I wouldn't do it on a routine basis, if I had to use a gallon to make it to a gas station I would and it won't hurt a thing. The tiny amount of oil involved is a non-issue, repeated uses over a very long time maybe. As far as 1 quart per 1,000 miles that's the point at which GM would take action in a warranty case for their cars. Anyone that drives a car 5,000 miles without checking the oil is asking for it. Gas has far more contaminates in it from the under ground tanks than most people realise. It's why there's a fuel filter and we have to change it about once a year. BTW there are no rubber parts inside today's injectors. There is only a single seal at the top that seals it to the fuel rail. OE repair information tells to lightly oil these when installing them.

Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

Think about it guys......even at 32:1, 1 ounce of oil to 32 ounces the added to 10 gallons that becomes 1280:1 , if that causes you problems then sell that car and get a real one!! would be sooooo diluted it wouldn't to any harm. If you have check engine lights coming on you've got more problems than premixed gas. I've done it for years without ever a glitch. I've also used premixed gas that was 6 months old with no issues. (however, I use "Sta-bil" in all my two-stroke gas and have NEVER had any issues or performance decrease.

End of summer time all the gas in the boat ( generally 10-20 gallons of 40:1 quicksilver) goes into my 1996 Ford truck.. Never an issue...

Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

At the end of the year I dump my left over gas from my boat in the lake and set in on fire. I would not try this a home I am a professional.

Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

Like several before have stated, I also have poured the remaining mixture of two-stroke oil/gas into the tank of my van's and have NEVER had even the slightest problem as a result.

I'm not a tech, but know that pouring even as much as 3 to 4 gallons of fuel with oil mixture {40:1 = Very small quantity of oil!} into a 25 gallon {Or bigger!} fuel cell will result in a oil/fuel ratio that it is literally non-existent once mixed with the fuel already in the tank.

I did this from the day I bought my new 2001 extended E250 that I drove till it had 140K on it and never had a single fuel related issue. I did the same with another fuel injected van, and two carburated vans before that. I continue to do it to this day with my 2006 EFI Ford E350.

I raced motocross for more than 25 years and have been mixing fuel for gasser's since 1998, and have disposed of fuel this way the entire time! It hasn't hurt a single thing in my experiences!

Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

as far as the fuel injection goes a slight about of oil couldn't hurt anything from what i have seen. the fuel systems usually compose of metal lines and or plastic lines. the injectors are metal or have plastic bodies. and the orings should be fine afterall they should be designed with possible oil getting on them from oil leaks, service or what ever. the only thing i could possible see is the oxygen sensors or exhaust converters but again they should be designed to handle some oil due to possible oil consumption and or a leak that causes oil to enter the combustion chamber. but emissions are getting very strick and these cars are very sensitive. i have seen some people try e85 in a vehicle not designed for it and it causes issues and of course not under warranty. but if you are just throwing in some left over gal in a huge tank i cant see what it would hurt.

It wont hurt a deisel either. Heck my brothers wife filled his deisel with gas and drove 30 miles before she figured it out. We drained the tank and changed the filter then drove it another 100000 miles.

Yes this thread was dead and that was probably a good thing. I however cannot let this "comment/advise" go.

It depends a LOT on the type of injection system on the diesel and the other features. Try that on some systems and the cost to fix the issues will be a great incentive to never try it again. Stories are nice, facts are harsh. The amount of gas added to the system is also a factor. Best advice is do not put gas in a diesel, especially newer designs.

Re: 2 Stroke Mix In Your Vehicle??

Adding gas to a tank of diesel can cause the mix to self combust. Learned that the hard way when I used to deliver fuel and always used the same tanks for every fuel type. Not a good idea to add one to the other, even accidentally.
