A mixture of 50-1, how do I mix it? For one gallon or litre of gas how much oil? Thanks for any help

much
By the sound of it - you'd better buy the little overpriced bottle of oil that says "Mix with 1 gallon of gas" in the instructions.

It's not that difficult. How many ounces in your gallon? It does vary. And if you're in the States even your ounce is different there.

On 1/1/2005 5:10 PM US(ET), Rick took fingers to keys, and typed the following:

To get the proper mixture of oil per gallon of gas, divide 128 (# of ounces in a gallon) by ratio. i.e. 128 / 40 = 3.2, so a 40:1 ratio needs 3.2 oz. of oil. Other ratios: 25:1 = 5.1 oz per gallon. 50:1 = 2.5 oz per gal.

Last I heard Canada was part of North America so I guess Canadians are "American" too.

I'm sorry. I can't do anything about that.
To get the proper mixture of oil per Imperial gallon of gas, divide 160 (# of Imperial ounces in an Imperial gallon) by ratio. i.e. 160 / 40 = 4, so a 40:1 ratio needs 4 Imperial oz. of oil added to an Imperial gallon. Other Imperial gallon/ounce ratios: 25:1 = 6.4 Imperial oz per Imperial gallon. 50:1 = 3.2 Imperial oz per Imperial gallon.
To get the proper mixture of oil per Litre of gas, divide 100 (# of centilitres in a litre) by ratio. i.e. 100 / 40 = 2.5, so a 40:1 ratio needs 2.5 centilitres (25 millilitres) of oil added to a litre of gas. Other Litre ratios: 25:1 = 4.0 centilitres (40 millilitres) per litre. 50:1 = 2.0 centilitres (50 millilitres) per litre

Sorry, last should be (20 millilitres), rather than the ratio number of 50.

1 part oil to 50 parts gas. :) It should say on the bottle, too.
