Default Re: stock tank gas to oil?

Many years ago I had a Sears moped (Puch). One time I put the oil in first and it did go right to the carb. It took me a while to get that all sorted out. Should have put the gas in first.
lol, that happened to me the very first time I mixed it up at the gas station. I had to flip the bike upside down, and the oil in the carb and lines returned to the tank. And of course, the ratio was way off, so I drained the tank and tried again.
