How bad is too much gas stabilizer/
 
Haven't been able to sell my old house yet and the lawn needed to be mowed. I filled a 2.5 gallon can with new gas but forgot the stabilizer. Yesterday my wife was going near there, so I have her a 4 ounce bottle and told her to put an ounce in.
She put the whole bottle in.
I don't care about the stabilizer as I bought a box of little bottles for $2 at a garage sale, but I wonder if 4x the proper amount will affect the lawn mower.

If it's self propelled,you probably wont be able to hold it back,get your track shoes on.

Bottle says overdosing won't cause harm.

Yeah, I wouldn't think it would do much of anything. Maybe the exhaust will smell different, but that's about it.

If you have large enough gas can, you could dilute it with 7.5 more gallons of gas.
