Default can you use carb cleaner in a 2 cycle?

Can I use some gumout or Berryman B12 in my chain saw, or is there a special product for 2 cycle engines?

Yes, not a problem. I use it in my favorite Lawnboy 2 cycle mower all the time. It evaporates quickly.

No **** Sherlock. They also have oil in the gas. That could have an effect on the chemical properties of the carb cleaner.
