 two stroke on straght gas

Help
my wife just ran a tank of straight gas through a new , maybe 4 tanks of oil gas mix, a brand new Stihl $300 weedeater. It still runs. Of course its my fault that she did this.
Any permanent damage?

Does the engine start, run and sound ok? If it seems normal it should be fine. Modern oils are really good, just the traces from the mixed fuel can provide enough lubrication.

What ratio do you mix? Many oils could be ran quite lean even 100:1 or 150:1, not recommend though. I run Golden Spectro Racing Two Stroke at 50:1 in all my two strokes with premium fuel. I have never seized even one on the Golden Spectro even back when I raced Husqvarna and KTM Dirt Bikes.

 two stroke on straght gas

Greetings and thanks for the reply,
It starts and runs well, whew! I was wondering if it might have scored the cylinder walls or some heat problem that might show up later. I hope there was enough oil left in the tank when she fueled it to keep it from siezing or doing permanent damage.
I run the recommended little bottle of oil to a two and a half gal tank of white gas (93)octane. I have run a stihl O28 av super chainsaw for 15 fifteen years with that mix and it still runs strong. Let success be your guide.
I just cant believe a college educated smart lady could make such an error. She has seen me do this mix at least a hundred times and the BLUE gas is Blue and the White gas is white.
WOMEN! I have never figured and never will. I just know they run the world and are ALWAYS RIGHT.Men are always wrong but the women like us and keep us around for their amusement. Sorry to ramble.
The weed eater is ok and so am I.
Thanks
TRACER

I would run a tank or two of 32:1 through it just to be on the safe side and ensure all the internal components get re-oiled and thoroughly coated.

Glad to hear it worked out. Like the part about it being your fault. Laughing out loud.

I would NOT run 32:1 through it, two wrongs dont make a right and you may foul up some of the system. If it calls for 100:1 then that is what it gets.

Foul up some of the system?????? Such as?????? The point of running an excessively oil rich fuel through the engine is to recoat the internal bearings and ring grooves with a good coating of oil after being washed down with straight gas and striped of all lubrication. 2 strokes have run off of 32:1 for decades with little problems. My point was to run just enough to ensure the engine is now being properly lubricated and potentially minimize any damage that may have been done. Yes.....running an oil rich fuel mix such as 32:1 for an unnecessary amount of time and at low rpm can potentially clog exhaust ports but not for the short amount of time I suggested. I personally would not run ANY 2 stroke engine at 100:1 unless it was oil injected. Even then; that is right at the limits of little to near no lubrication. The EPA is not going to buy me a new trimmer so I use 40:1 in ALL of my 2 strokes; especially my Stihls which I have used with this mix for over 10 years. I am still on the original OEM plugs on my O-66, FS-450K, ST-400, and BG-85.

Why do you use high octane fuel in your two-strokes? I have always run 87...is there a reason for this. If there is, it would be worth the switch for no more than I use...a gallon lasts at least two, sometimes three weeks. Glad you admitted it was your fault...many men would blame their wife and try to make her feel stupid...hats off to you!

My Stihl requires premium fuel. Says so right in the manual.
