Default Fuel mixture ?

Ive been mixing my fuel at 20.l with mineral based oil for a while now. I brought some Castrol TTR full sinthetic oil it said it can be mixed up to 50.1 on the contained Would it be OK to mix it at 40.1 or is that too little oil? thanks mick29

40:1 actually has more oil than 50:1. The ratio is gas : oil.

On third reading, I think I see what you're saying. I've read of some people using even 100:1. I would go with the ratio that makes your engine happy. Check the plug and see what it looks like, then modify your mix accordingly.

40:1 will be perfectly fine.
If it ain't broke, and you mess with it long enough, IT WILL BE.
