Default A question about additives

Hey guys on the motorized bicycle forum, I am wondering if it's okay to use additives that are designed for cars in a 2 stroke chainsaw engine? The claim (below) dosen't say anything about using it in a 2 stroke. I know that sea foam motor treatment works as a effective 2 stroke additive, but what about Lucas fuel system cleaner aka tune up in a bottle. Here is Lucas oil's claim: (below the link)

A powerful blend of oils and additives that contain no SOLVENTS. Designed to increase power and fuel mileage and also lower exhaust emissions through a more complete combustion.

Lucas Fuel Treatment is formulated for both gasoline and diesel engines, carbureted or fuel injected. It gives your fuel system what it really needs - a blend of super slick oils and additives with a high detergent action that allows the engine to operate at maximum efficiency. Also, it cleans and lubricates the carburetor and injectors and causes the fuel to burn more thoroughly for increased power and less fuel consumption. Lucas Fuel Treatment should definitely be used in vehicles that require leaded fuel because it actually replaces the benefits of lead in gasoline without causing harmful emissions. Use it to pass smog tests. Finally, it totally neutralizes the harmful effects of low sulfur diesel fuel.

Lucas Fuel treatment complies with the federal low sulfur content requirements for use in diesel motor vehicles and nonroad, locomotive and marine diesel equipment engines.

It's the little bottle in the middle that I would like to use. Look below for the technical specifications sheet and a MSDS.
