How long will a 2 stroke run without oil?

Usually 2-stroke engines without oil will run several minutes (or several kilometers of driving) before dying. The lifespan of a 2-stroke with straight gas is short, because the lubrication to the bearings and piston is brought by the gasoline-oil-air mixture.

What is the difference between 2 cycle oil and regular oil?

As far as the user is concerned, the difference is that you add oil directly to the gas of your 2-cycle tool, while you pour oil into a separate port with a 4-cycle engine. Because it burns with the fuel, 2-cycle oil is lighter and contains additives for better combustion.
