For a 32:1 gas/oil mix, your looking at four ounces of oil to one gallon of gas...Xs this by 5 = 20 ounces oil to 5 gallons of gas.

I always use a full synthetic oil and ethanol-free gas myself which seems to be best on these little China Girls.

Always shake and mix gas before pouring into tank for uniformity of the mixture...DAMIEN
