 2-stroke oil

My emergency backup/dirty job saw is a Poulan that takes a 40:1 mixture, and I've been using one of those auto-measuring plastic jugs to add the oil.

Only this time, I got my usual gallon of gas, then went to dump in the oil, and ooops... not enough. Like a little over 1/2 as much as needed.

I assume I could get away with a *little* less, but this is probably pushing it. Is there something else I can add to eke it out? Auto oil, bar oil, gearbox oil?

 2-stroke oil

partly because I need it before I can get to the nearest town to buy some, and partly because I'm curious. Wink yeah right

If you were useing a synthetic 2 cycle oil,you can go to 60 or even 80/1, but with petrolium oil it would be the end. Also ,regular motor oils have detergents and are high in ash,both of which will destroy a 2 stroke.
