    ancientdad, you Drive this forum! Lol
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    This may be a daft question, if so please put me right.
    Why is some petrol in the oil such bad news when my two-strokes are happy with very petroly oil all the time?

    2 stroke is another animal all to itself..
    Gas alone-4 stroke good - 2 stroke bad
    Gas and oil 4 stroke bad - 2 stroke good...
    Run ur 2 stroke on gas alone... you will have a similar result with 4 stroke with gas in the oil...

    Actually, burning oil in the gas in a 4 stroke is no big deal, just unnecessary smoke. However, as Richard referenced above, plain bearing crankshaft engines suffer (as well as those with bushing-style cam bearings, like the 175s, 350s, 360s and 450s) from gas in the oil due to the diluted lubrication

    Well of course many old Villiers engines had plain bearings but I think they were bronze so I expect they coped better with thin oil ?
