2 cycle fuel/oil mix

My Poulan chain saw requires a 40/1 mix and my Mantis tiller a 50/1.  It is hard to keep fresh fuel for both.  Would the 40/1 work in the Mantis without harming the engine?

    Absolutly, might smoke a little more, but I doubt you'd even notice a difference,

    A friend runs an equipment rental business, he adjusts most if not all of his 2-cycles to run on one mix ratio. You might try changing: the carb settings to "richer/leaner"; the spark plugs to a "hotter/colder" plug, or whatever else might work WITHOUT DAMAGING THE ENGINE.
