Mixing 2-Stroke Fuel

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by wertberger, Jul 23, 2006.

  1. What is a quick and effective way of mixing 2-stroke oil with petrol?
    Any tricks, techniques or clever gadget that will make the process less burdensome?

  2. Use a jerry can bigger than what you need.
    Grab one of those 2 stroke oil bottles with the seperate chamber moulded on the side. Chainsaw & mower 2 stroke oil comes in them usually. They have all the premix ratios on them & are also graduated. Makes it real easy. Loosen the small chamber cap, squeeze the bottle till you get the required amount of oil transferred to the small chamber & simply tip into your jerry can. Too easy.
    Don't try & mix the fuel & oil in the bike tank.
    Use good quality oil. Synthetic smells really good :LOL: :LOL:
    Thats about all I can think of.
  3. Pretty much what roarin said but one tip is to only pour a couple of litres of petrol in with the oil and then shake it to mix it then top up with the rest of the petrol.(lot easier to shake a couple of litres than twenty)
  4. Thanx guys.
