    If you have a gas truck, pour it in the tank. Fill it up if it makes you feel better. This is a one or two gallon mix right? Truck will be fine burning that little bit of oil if it is.

    its only a few ounces of oil...lol. Dont be paranoid..worst thing that can happen is your car might smoke a little tiny bit. if you dont feel comfortable mail it to me I can use it, gas is expensive enough.

    Yeah, "Burn it"..... in your lawn mower, or anything else that runs on Gasoline. The worst it will do is Lube it up good.

    Used to ride 2 stroke bikes - Always dumped any leftover mix in the car or truck or riding mower - doesn't hurt it a bit :)

    What do you mean "I messed it up"? If you added too much oil to the gas add more gas in proportion to the ratio. If you added too much gas then add more oil.

    But if you're still uncomforable with this mixture use it in your vehicle .
