    Premix: 16 oz for every 5 gallons?

    A Mechanic recently told me i should mix 16 oz of oil for every 5 gallons of gas. i believe in 2nd opinions so does that sound right to any of u guys?

    the ratio is right for 40:1
    5 Gallons = 640 Ounces
    640/16=40

    Do the math 3.2 oz per gallon
    5gal divide by 16 oz = 3.2 oz per gallon

    Thanks, but the "math" specifically is not what I meant. I want to verify if 16 oz, or 3.2 oz of oil per gallon is even accurate to begin with. Perhaps it should be 10 oz for every gallon of fuel or 20 oz etc..etc..

    The correct ratio of Gas to oil is 40:1
    5gal. Gas to 16Oz of oil
    So your mechanic told you the right Ratio.

    Someone didnt do well in math jk
    For a 40:1 ratio 5 gallons of gas per 16OZ of oil. As stated above buy a Ratio Rite cup, it makes things a lot easier BUT it only goes up to 2.5 gallons so you have to double it.

    SEADOOS 1993-1999 2 STROKE are required to have at-least 3.2 oz. per gallon, which equals the 3.2oz. x 5 gallons= 16 0z. of oil

    Easy as pie!
