You have a two cycle engine runs on an oil that is mixed with gasoline. Why should'nt you be able to use that same gas oil mixture with another small two cycle engine. If the additives are different does that mean I need to have a two gallon gas container for each piece of equipt. Use only that gas oil mixture for that motor, Seems redundant!

Some 2 cycles use 1:25 oil:gas while others use 1:40, 1:50, or 1:100. Also, some oils are for air cooled engines only (they say so on the label). You can use more oil than recommended, but the motor will smoke more.
