I pull the front bucket out and remove the reserve line and connect a electric fuel pump to it. i have one i pulled off a 7.3 ford diesel frame mounted kind. works great.

I used one of these:
I placed the tubes in the sun for 15-20mins to warm them up and make them straighter and I removed the elbow at the gas tank then slipped the longer tube into the tank and started pumping. After you remove all of the gas, siphon a little bit of oil and work it into the siphon so the gas doesn't eat up anything just in case.

Could borrow a electric pump today and drained the fuel connected to the reserve line ,had to drain a half tank of gas .
Now i want to add the new fuel but i have two cans filled with fuel, one premix and one regular ,i labeled the premix can but the label came of now i dont
know wich one to add.
Is there a trick to determin witch fuel has oil in it and witch is regular ?

Premix looks bluish usually (from the oil color) and straight gas looks clear/yellowish.

i add the oil directly to the fuel tank then add the gas, i keep the gas cans unmixed in case i need some gas for one of my other power equipment or one of my automobiles. the fuel with the oil in it will have a bluish looking color to it. the regular gas should have a yellowish color to it unless you have 100 octane or higher.

Hmmmm canīt see any difference in color ,i always have spare gas in a can in case i run out and driving to the nearest gasstation is a long drive when iīm at the beach.
Normal i add the oil to the tank and the fill it up so it wil mix ,but the cans i mix before i use them in case i forget to add oil.
I was thinking to put a little fuel from both cans on a piece of paper en let it vaporate ,the one with oil must leave a greasy mark right ?
