    That's where all mine goes. I just make sure tank is nearly full before I put it in.

    Yes you can. I usally save it for the mowers. I have a old kohler that will just about run on anything.

    Most 2 cycle oils have fuel stabilizer in them so the fuel should still be good to use in your trimmers and blowers. I have used mine that was left over from last year and have not had a problem. Let me know if I am wrong on this.

    You got my vote, i see nothing wrong with trying to milk every cent I can out of every dollar. Nothing wrong with being frugal IMHO.
    Use the mixed fuel it will not hurt. I do it all the time with left over outboard motor fuel mix. Just make sure your gas tank is nearly full to help thin it out.
