I pour mixed gas in my truck all the time.. a couple of gallons mixed in with a full tank won't hurt anything.

not if you mix it with a full tank.. If your tank holds 15 gallons of gas, it would be roughly 218:1 ratio.. I don't think that'd be much of an issue.

10 liters of mixed fuel won't hurt anything. As most tanks are upwards of 80-90 liters, if I remember correctly.

Do you know anybody with a 2-stroke weedeater or chainsaw? In a pinch (too lazy to drive to the station) I have put pre-mix in my lawnmower with no unpleasant side effects.

I used to do it all the time when I had a 2t. It will cause some excess carbon build-up if you do it all the time, but I wouldn't worry about it in a mower, or a truck for that matter.
