Is it safe to use a 23-Watt CF inverter on a 40-Watt tube?

    I like to conserve energy by using a 23-Watt compact
    fluorescent to power a 40-Watt fluorescent tube. Is it okay to use
    a 23-Watt (or maybe 18-Watt) compact fluorescent on an ordinary
    48" fluorescent tube?

    Hi Sam,by doing that you can only have half of the brightness of the 40
    watts FL, & you
    will see the two end darken on the FL,hence shorten the FL life.
