Most dealerships nowadays, if there's an internal engine issue, they just put another motor in it.
ya dealers are VERY careful of assesing blame in situations where odd damage occured.
I had a customer last year with a 2 liter turbo tiguan. His wife didnt change the oil for 45k miles and the variable valve timing took a dump and once torn down had more sludge that I have ever seen in a car with 50k miles. guess what? Car and engine had CLEAR signs of abuse and VW still changed the engine No charge no questions asked.
Most dealerships will tell you its not worth trying to blame someone that can turn around and sue you.
Sucks I know but it is what it is.

While it might cause an issue with a Cat or and O2 sensor over time depending on the ratio it wont hurt much else but in that article it leads to the conclusion that it might just gunk up certain parts...?
I would just opt for a "good" fuel system cleaner and even consider the middle grade of fuel or better... But what do I know I drive a diesel...
Its all good...

I use B&G injector cleaner. Great stuff if you havent tried it.
I wonder how many people on the interwebs will read that post and use 2 stroke oil in their oil tank. Whats the worse that could happen right? lol
Hell I wonder if marvel mystery oil is just two stroke oil with some shit it in to make it a color other than blue...
anyone want to open a fuel additive business with me? We will buy some tcw-3 add some dye and fairy powder. BOOM mirrions!
