50:1 mix?

Hello, am I right in thinking that if I put in 5litres of petrol I should add 100ml of two stroke oil? - 50litres of petrol 1litre of two stroke oil. I know I'm thick :-) . Thanks for any help. Mark

Yes, for 50:1 then: 1 litre = 20ml, 5 litres = 100ml, 10 litres = 200ml etc.

If you have a young family, the baby milk bottles are really handy for the small oil amounts. Hide them away after though - for your sake and the baby's...

There was a discussion about this recently. If you have portable tank(s), about 4 or 5 posts down on this thread Correct Fuel Mixture Help Please ?? is a handy summary for various standard portable tank sizes.
