Two Cycle Oil

I always wondered what would happen if you put regular gas into something like a leaf blower that needs two-cycle oil/gas mixture. Now I know. You go to Lowes and spend a hundred bucks on a new leaf blower.

Yeah, running most two-strokes with just gas is like driving your car without oil.

Fried cylinders. But hey, at least now you get to buy something new and cool.

Was this before or after the bourbon and the Derby?

Knuck, you did this for Science. Stephen Hawking appreciates your diligence for educating the masses.

I wasn't exactly sure that I had added the oil to the little gas can, but I didn't think I would have NOT done it, and I really wanted to clean up the driveway.

That little leafblower ran really, really great for about four minutes. Then it quit. You can't even pull the cord. Unlubricated metal and extreme heat don't mix.
