OK guys, I'm the nube, or is that noob, what ever. I'm going to start my engine for the first time tomorrow and I need to know exactly how many ounces of oil do I add to a gallon to make it 20 to 1. The chart on the bottle of 2 stroke oil does not give that ratio. It goes from /16 to 1// to /32 to 1/ and so on.

My bike is a boygofast 66cc engine. The manual gives break in mixtures for 48cc and 80cc. So I'm assuming I need to break my engine in at 20 to 1 like the 80cc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark M

To get the ratio divide 128 oz. (one gallon) by the amount of ounces you want to use. For example 128 divided by 6 equals 21.333 to 1 or 21:1 rounded. To find out how many ounces you need to get a certain ratio divide 128 by the ratio you desire. For example 20:1 - 128 divided by 20 equals 6.4. You will need to add 6.4 ounces of oil to one gallon of gas to achieve a 20:1 oil/gas mix.

Get the Tech 1 small bottle from Wal-Mart. Mix with 1 gallon of gas=16:1 That'll make 2 tanks, perfect for break-in. This oil works well in the china dolls and doesn't smoke much at that level. Then run half a bottle in 1 gallon=32:1 thereafter. Works for me and is cheap and easy to mix and give great results.

Useful guide: 1 US pint = 16 fluid ounces (fl. oz.) of water.
1 Imperial pint = 20 fl. oz. of water.
Therefore 1 US gallon = 8 lbs.
1 Imp gallon = 10 lbs.
This explains why we can often get more mpg than Americans can.

so i have sixteen pints of rum, then i go boom boom boom!!!!

darn tootin shell go boom boom boom!! thats near ten litres of rum! taking an imperial to be 600ml or so...i think...ooooh! a conversion chart! maybe i should go look?
