I accidentally put approximately 1 cup of two stroke snowmobile oil into my Polaris FSIQ four stroke engine 750cc no turbo. I put about 60 miles on since adding it. My husband had "stroke" about it. Any advice?
Expert:  Kenny O. replied 9 months ago.

Thanks Colleen, so about 8oz of two stroke oil in a four stroke engine obviously not recommended, but that little isn't going to hurt anything. Mixing two stroke oils especially petroleum base and synthetic is really bad in a two stroke because of coagulation will likely exist. I would recommend that if you already haven't changed it that you do so. The two stroke oil is usually a thinner weight and it does carry rust inhibiters and its actually a cleaner (more pure) then your conventional 4 stroke motor oils, as they are generally priced higher then 4 stroke oil. That little as far as hurting anything in 60 miles I don't see that there would be any issues, I would rather have that then the alternative, which is not enough, and is more likely to do damage to the engine.

But to be on the safe side, I would change it, with a new filter, you'll be fine !

Thanks Colleen
