I have a Hobart 140 and I have just recently started running gas. I have a bottle of 75/25. My uncle asked me if I could weld some stainless for him, I'm not sure what he wants welded but its probably something small. The chart on my welder says to use a tri-mix or 98/2.

My question is can I get away with using the 75/25?

You can but itll be prone to rust afterwards. I use the 98/2 amd stainless wire and never had any issue. Tri mix works as well. 75/25 will not keep contaminents out and your weld end up rusting down the road.
