He put 2stroke mix of gas, in his gas tank. You are screwed if you run that. Say bye bye engine. Get it out of there. How? Beats the **** outta me.

I'm not 100% sure either, either you put this 2-stroke fuel/oil into your gas tank, or you put it instead of normal motor oil. Being 2.5 gallons, I'm only going to assume the gas tank

At the risk of mucking up things like injectors, fuel filters, or catalytic converters, I wouldn't run this stuff.

I think it would be ok as long as you fill up the rest of the tank with gas .
I think its an 18 gal tank and the 2 gal of mix you just put in there should be ok

or just pull the fuel line back by the tank somewhere and drain it out.

I am assuming you picked up the gas jug for the weed eater and dumped it into your car'* gas tank. If it was mixed 32:1 (32 parts gas to 1 part of oil), and you put in 2 1/2 gallons of this mixture, and my math is correct, you added 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of oil to your gas tank.

If I made this mistake, I would immediately fill up the tank with gas to dilute the oil, and run it like normal. You might have a little blue smoke for this tank, due to the oil.

car will be a little smokey, but 1.5 cups of oil in 18 gallons is not very much at all. You should be ok to run it, but it will be smokey and you should check your O2 and plugs after you are done. You might want to run the tank to half empty and refill it, this will dilute it even more.

I wouldn't worry about it.....I've done it before with more and didn't have a problem......Just burn half and top off and keep doing that for a lil while untill you think it'* gone....Then Run Some TECHRON or some reallllllyyyy Potent fuel system cleaner to get it all out.
