Would it hurt the engine if a tad bit more oil is put in if your ratio is 50:1 and you put in probably 49:1 or 48:1?

If you measure your 2 cycle oil in a measuring cup that Doesn’t give you good readings. Instead of putting 2.6 oz of oil you put in 2.8 oz

What would happen?  


2.6oz is for 1 gallon of gas but your measurements are off and you put 2.8 oz in it

    No problem. Using a little too much oil in the mix is better than if you put too little oil in. Worst case, the engine will smoke a little more than usual.
