A note of caution about runnig dry.
A two cycle engines needs the oil mixed with the gas to lubricate itself. Running the engine dry gives you that last moment without any lube in the engine for protection. Might not cause much damage but the cumulative effect and the dry cylinders made available for corrosion to take hold ought to be considered.
