    PREMIX...in or out

    Should I premix in the jugs or add the specified oil to the tank then fill it at the gas station?

    I know how many gallons of gas I`m gonna put in my tank before I pump, so I pour in the correct amount of oil, then add the gas. Now I can get to the launch ramp quicker.

    I would not do it that way if it were mine Cat. I would always shake, rattle and roll the stuff together in a 5 gallon can first. You want to make certain is mixes really well before you ride.

    either way is fine..

    thing is, make sure like everyone has basically said.. if you put it in the gas tank, then pump gas to your tank like at a gas tank/not in a jug then make sure you get the correct amount of gas. This is what I normally did with my GPR at mudbug and what not..

    so example being.. if 3oz for 1 gallon (completely making up numbers!!)

    and I had half a tank.. i'd go as far as doing like 6oz then doing 2 gallons.. if I still had some more tank room do 3oz or 1.5 til it is full.

    Doesn't really matter just make sure you have the correct ratio!
