    I know that I should know this by now but ...... I'm supposed to mix my ratio 50:1 but the paper on my oil fell off. I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. How much oil for 5 gallons of gas? HELP because my memory sucks and other people know more than me.:smile2::smile2:

    only question i'll add to yours is this. why do different brand oils say different mixtures?
    go to store and read them sometime. some of them are different.
    i use the standard 16oz to 12 gal. and go from there. don't let tank get real low so figure averages out.

    I just bought the clear bottle they have in the sporting goods section at walmart, it has all the mixtures on the bottle in increments, i usually put fuel at the station then see how many gallons went in, then fill the bottle up to the desired line, pour in & let it mix on the way to the lake...
