Well OK, Tim….

But you really should not use starting fluid in a 2-stroke motor.  You have to remember that the intake charge goes through the crank-case.  Anything other than fuel and the appropriate oil going in there can have a detrimental effect on bearings.  The stuff can be corrosive, and it is volatile, of course.  Unlikely, but still possible that it could ignite under the piston, instead of on top of it.
