I don't ride as much as I'd like, so for me its easier to mix a gallon of fuel at a time.  To make my life easy (plus I'm lazy), I have a small bottle I'll pour the two stroke oil into.  On the small bottle I've marked lines for one, two, and three US gallons. For the fuel I use an old empty jug that previously held window washer fluid, (one US gallon).  I pour one gallon of gas into the jug, and add the appropiate oil.  I run approx 50:1 (approx 2.5 oz), so my preset lines on my two stroke oil bottle and always working with one gallon of fuel at a time ensures a consistent mixture.   

Just my $.02...  that and $3.00 will get you a redbull..   8)

I like mine just fine. I mix 4 gal of VP110 to 10 Gal 93 pump fuel. That lasts the boy about a day and a half.
I use the Maxima Ratio cup.


For some reason I can't post a pic using the img codes.

I mix about two gallons every so often, but the only gas tanks I have to mix in are each 1 gallon, so it works out to just measure a gallon each  ;D But when I get a 5 gallon jug, this is a great site to use.
Mixin' gas and kickin' ass, Burnin' oil and smellin' royal. Two stroke until I die (which hopefully isn't soon)   If your not mixing gas, your not kicking ass.

Exactly what I was thinking.

128 ounces = 1 US gallon

128 divided by 4 is 32, so 20oz of oil for 5 gallons for 32:1, 16oz for 40:1, 12.8oz for 50:1.

Hey anybody out there using Castrol R30 ?
I have a CR250 R6,anybody had issues with plug fouling ?
Open to suggestions about oil ratio,and heat range of plug
Is 32:1 too much oil ? Any body tried 40:1 ? I have gone from a 9 to an 8 plug.
It seems to run a bit cleaner. Smells great.

As long as your jetting is good you shouldn't foul plugs.
Some of the CR guys here can tell you about if 40:1 is ok.
Depends how you ride.
