I do it every year at the end of summer when I am finished with the weed eater for the year,very little smoke at all. I have even ran out of straight gas and used mixed without diluting it and no smoke then,either.

Not saying I'd do it ... just saying it would probably be fine.

A bit of a contradiction? I'd go with the second part, not the first, and get "Mikey" the lawnmower (yours or a neighbor's) to eat it.
