2 stroke Vs 15-40 rotella

hey

so walmart has a sale on 15-40. it's like 10 bucks a gallon. 2 stroke is around 11 something. ive got a few gallons already, but ive swaped to the synthetic 5-40.

is it worth anything to dump it in the tank, as New oil? instead of using the 2 stroke?

i dont care about smoking any... i drive at night, all the time so it doesnt matter to me any

thanks!

I will be similar I have burnt up a few gallons of clean new, engine oil in the truck in the last few years. No big deal to just use it up. But if I were going out to buy an oil specifically to mix with the #2 to lube it and burn clean I would use the 2 stroke oil
