As a related thing. I was looking through my junk and came up with a handful of 10 CC syringes that they sold my wife prescription cream in. That looks perfect for mixing up a half liter of 50:1 (one squirt) or one and a half to make 32:1 (really 33.3)
I am thinking that I will find the capacity of my chain saw and weed eater, do the math and figure out how much to shoot in to mix it right in the tank. Then I only need to have raw gas, no premix. I bet the capacity is in metric these days anyway

Could work. I like to mix in a separate container, so I can shake it for several seconds, and mix the oil completely. Hope you have the upper body strength to shake the entire chainsaw. Not sure I do.

If you don't, you most certainly should "not" be handling the saw!!.

Yopu can measure ANY capacity in metric.. Empty the tank. Fill the tank using a metric measurig cup, syringe, or whatever so you can keep track of exactly how many CCs you put in. Just remember if tank mixing to fill the tank about half full of fuel, add the oil, put on the cap, shake well, then remove the cap and fill to full. Oil and gas need to be well mixed, and you don't want a slug of unmixed oil getting into the carb. It doesn't go through the jets very well!!!

More oil is NOT the answer. Better oil is. No reason at all a consumer grade 2 stroke cannot go 300-500 hours - without having the exhaust plug up - with today's oils.
In Burkina Faso everyone runs old Motobecane, Solex, and Peugeot mopeds, and they all run with standard motor oil mixed 16:1 or heavier. The city of Ouagadougou (the capital) is under a constant oil smoke haze. It might help control Malaria by controlling the mosquito population ---.
Every month or so they pull the cyl heads and scrape the crap off the pop of the piston with a wooden stick and every 6 months or so they pull the muffler and bake it on a charcoal fire.
With good 2 stroke oil, properly mixed, you don't have ANY of those issues.

3000 to 5000 on top of the line consumer grade with a cast cylinder not a crome one. You pay when you buy home owner $ 100 junk pay $300 to $600 or more depending on need. thease are more forgiving., well last you a long time. I use mine all year with no worres. mostly one shot.to keep track. a good saw can run both depending on the load and time running. heat displacement is the key. a large bore peugeot can run 30 wt with enough heat,large bore carb, homeowner tools one mix or get a can ready at the saw shop or sears and may you will have some compresson next year .HAVE A GOOD ONE !!
