    how do you measure the gas and oil ratio, for example lets say 25 to 1, do you use a measurer at first, is it in ounces. what type of oil and gas is good for a new 2 strroke engine......

    A gallon of fuel is 64 oz. How many oz of oil will give you a 24:1 mix? 64 oz fuel divided by 24 parts equals 2.67 oz of oil per gallon. Any good moonshiner can tell you that.

    I think you meant 128 oz? Unless Google is lying to me...

    Okay to answer your question OP...
    Buy a portable gas tank (let's say you got a 5 gallon one)

    5 Gallons = 640 Ounces
    640 / 25 = 25.6
    So just round that to 26 Ounces

    Put 26 Ounces of the oil (use a measuring tool, you know like the kitchen ones) and add that to the 5 gallon portable gas tank and mix it. Then just use the portable gas tank to fill your actual gas tank. And I guess just convert different values with a different sized fuel tank.
    (Well, this was my plan, is there a flaw with it?)

    As for the type of oil and gas....

    Chill sandwich, he's a moonshiner...that apparently has been tasting a little too much of the last batch. LOL

    I agree with the 128 ounces

    I use a Corona bottle! (12oz)
    12oz of oil mixed with 2 gallons of gas is 24:1 (for engine break in)... 12oz of oil mixed with 3 gallons of gas is 32:1.

    It's really that easy!! ;)

    But do you drink the Corona first?
    I like it with a little lime and salt. Something like 100:1 :)
