Well, will a 26" × 1.5-2.2 inner tube be ok to use in a 700c-40 tyre ?
While looking for my old wireless computer at Moms (didn't find it !) I found this inner tube there, unused etc. etc. And me being tight................
( Not really, just Fundus Inoperáblius )
 
No.

Short, sharp and to the point, I like it !
Next person I see on an MTB with 26" presta valves gets a free schwalbe inner tube then.
Cheers Mickle.
Award yourself an extra mince pie if you can hoop it over them as they go past.

Yes, you can use it if you want. I've used a 650x23c tube in a 700x28c tyre OK.

It will be a bit fiddly to fit inside the cover, and if you get a bit of glass/flint in your tyre it will puncture quicker as it will be a bit overstretched.
 
They are very forgiving, I have used a 406 (20") in a 559 (26") after a valve came away.

However........................

If you don't know how old it is then it may be perished and be vulnerable.
