Added Non-Ashless 2 Cycle Engine Oil

So I have been running about a half oz per gallon of ashless 2 cycle engine oil in my 05 6.0. I buy the 8oz bottles and add one when I get to just below the half tank mark. Some how an 8 oz. bottle non-ashless of universal 2 cycle engine oil got into the mix of bottles and I added it before looking at the bottle today.

Anybody think I need to be worried about it? I went through the rest of the bottles and they are all ashless, guess they got mixed up at the store and I didn't even notice. Anything I should add to help prevent any problems?

Thanks for the help..........

I might be an idiot but how do I tell if its ashless. I looked at a bottle the other day at walmart and I didnt see anything that says ashless or not. Is it in big writing or do I have to read the whole bottle?

I don't know either if 2cycle oil is good or bad. Heck I know a guy that adds ATF fluid to his fuel. Personally I would stick with diesel fuel additives which have been used and TESTED for years. A $8,000+ engine is an expensive thing to test "snake oil" on.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

2 stroke has been tested and scored higher than alot of the additives.
