They just converted one or two stations to Sunoco near where my gf lives. First I'd seen of them in many years.

I just poured the last of the lawnmower and 2 stroke mix into the RAV's gas tank
??? I hope the gas wasn't already mixed with oil

Remember the fancy pumps and when you could blend your own gas, and dial-in the octane you wanted?

Ah yes, I remember my Olds 442 days, pulling up for Sunoco 260! It was expensive stuff, probably 50 cents a gallon!

Of course it was. Two gallons of gas with two stroke oil in it won't hurt anything nor would a ten gallon mix for that matter. Many on Bobistheoilguy add two stroke oil to each tank for some unknown/unproven benefit that only they can allegedly see.

Had to grind my mind on that one a bit but yes.....I do remember that. Seems like there was some kind of sight glass where you could see the fuel as it was being pumped also.
