I can see it running, but bad as hell. Prolly get crap gas milage, kill the o2 sensors and set off the check engine light, idle VERY rough, and spue blue smoke. Not sure though.

It really depends on the mixture rate. If it was 40:1, the damage will be less than if it was 12:1. Everything that D**khead said, plus foul your plugs and mess up the fuel filter.

Top up the tank ASAP with clean fuel and add a fuel injector cleaner to minimize the damage.

from what i know, the 2 stroke oil, that's what i called it, when i was riding my dirt bike back home, if for lubrication, and it burns up as well during combustion.

it shd not do any major damage.

In golf as in life it is the follow through that makes the difference.

Ive done it before, no harm done. Ive dumped a gallon of 32:1 premix in my tank and it ran just fine.
Granted, I wouldnt run a full tank of premix, but if you had a gallon laying around that was about 3 weeks old (on the verge of going bad), I dont think it would do much harm.
Id dump it in the lawnmower before I dumped it in your car or truck though.

2-cycle fuel

Yup, ditto. I've also dumped some into the car, no problems to report.

Now if you had a whole tank full it might make a difference....

Ok, I guess I won't tell him what he ran through his truck unless he has problems with it then I guess. Or maybe I won't tell him since that fuel wasn't supposed to be for his truck to begin with
