2 Stroke Conundrum

Recommended Posts

Collective Wisdom Time - Fuel / Oil ratio

 

I can't find anywhere. To get the right mix do you;

a) Put in the required amount of oil and then top up to the required volume of fuel? i.e. 400mL oil and 19.6L fuel gives you 20L mix @ 50:1

 

or

 

b) Put in the required amount of oil and then the required volume of fuel? i.e. 400mL oil and 20L fuel gives you a 20L (really 20.4L) mix @ 50:1

 

Hope I've asked the right question.

TIA

Cheers,

I think we are splitting hairs. Doing it one way or the other would not make any difference. In my two-stroke times the common ratio was 25:1 so we put in .4l of oil and then 10 liter (or is it litre?) of gas at the pump.

Thanks guys.

 

Paul, it is litre.

 

and

 

David, I was thinking a) would tend to oil up the plugs a bit quicker.

Of course, many years ago all bikes were two strokes.

 

Germany was no exception.

 

You should always add one litre when you put the hose in.

 

Hence......
