    Drain your tank first and start from there.

    If you have gas in there already just mix for 18.5 gallons that's how much fuel the XLL holds put it in tank then fill the tank to the rim and you will be fine.

    60 oz sound right for the initial then 16 oz for every 5 gal?

    At 40-1 ratio it's 16 oz for every 5 gallons. So to fill a 18.5 tank you need 59.2 ounces of oil.

    You pump it till you feel the fuel pumping through the primer then give it 4 to 5 more pumps, Then start the ski no need to hold throttle opened.
