    While at lunch today someone left a note on one of my 5 gal 2 cycle gas cans in the bed of my truck. It read; RAN OUT OF GAS and they left a 20 dollar bill under the can. Wow if they used it in their car I doubt it would even start. I kinda laughed some people just don't think, but I was surprised that they paid me, it was probably a senior citizen, anyone else would have just stole the whole can.

    I think it's surprising that they actually left you a $20. Too many dirtballs out there would have just taken it.

    Lol. It may have been okay though, just gummed up the works a little bit. Honest none the less.

    I hear a frivolous lawsuit in the future, for ruining his engine with 2-cycle :rolleyes:

    I was like who left this here and why. Then i saw the note. I gotta put the tailgate back on my truck so people cant see everything. Or keep the gas in the trailer, but that just builds up fumes. I think its time for transfer tanks in the bed.

    i worked for a guy years ago that would run out of gas on his mowers and put in like 2 gallons of 2 stroke gas in. they always ran but they smoked quite a bit to.. he might have got the check engine light on cause of the o2 censor, but it should have ran.. that is funny but nice he paid..

    I have to admit, I was in a bind at the end of the day and ran a mower out of fuel. In went the 50:1. I only needed enough for 5 min of mowing. I could not tell the difference between 50:1 and regular. As soon as I finished, I went to the gas station and filled up with straight gasoline. Who knows what mixed gas will do to a fuel injected car. So, did the person that ran out of gas use your fuel and then return the can?

    Sometimes we all need a little help in a pinch. I wouldn't think twice about helping out someone who ran out of gas, one day you might need some help. Kudos to the person for saying "thank you" with a 20.
