No no no

Putting more petrol in will only increase the mixture ratio ie 100:1 to say 120:1 for example

In one of your original posts "I put 10 litre of petrol and 100 0il." does make 100:1 - if the 100 was ml - for 10 litre of petrol you need to double the amount of oil to 200 ml to get 50:1

To get 50:1 with 15 litre of petrol you would need to mix in 300ml of good quality 2-stroke outboard oil. So if you already have 100ml of oil in then you need to add an additional 200ml of oil.

It is 2-stroke marine outboard oil that you are using?

The formula is (15 x 1000) / 300 = 50
