Limiting Reactants - Neither?

I'm confused about when neither of the reactants is limiting in the chemical reaction. Could someone give an example/explanation?

When there is no limiting reactant in a chemical equation, that means the reaction goes to completion. All of the reactants are used. Also, there is no excess. However, this is very unlikely to occur. I would also like to see an example of this, because I am not sure how to determine how much of a specified product is used.

You would know when there are no limiting reactants in an equation if both reactants produced the same mass of a product.
