The maximum amount of

**oil**that meets this standard**is 40**:**1**, or 3.2 ounces of**oil**per gallon of gasoline.**50**:**1**, or**50**parts gasoline to**1**part 2-cycle**oil is**2.6 ounces of**oil**per gallon of gasoline. Superior**oil is**synthetic, or blended synthetic**oil**. There**is**very little difference in**50**:**1**and**40**:**1**fuel mix.

Thereof, how much oil do I need for a 40 to 1 ratio?

Refer to the chart below to make sure you're using the correct 2-cycle fuel and oil mixture:

Mixing Ratio (Gas:Oil) | Volume of Gasoline | Volume of 2-Cycle Oil |
---|---|---|

32:1 | 1 US gal. (128 oz) | 4 oz. |

40:1 | 1 US gal. (128 oz) | 3.2 oz. |

50:1 | 1 US gal. (128 oz) | 2.6 oz. |

32:1 | 1 liter | 31.25 ml |

**40:1**oil to fuel ration means mixing 40 equal parts of fuel to 1 equal part of oil. This means to add 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle oil to one gallon of gas in order to make a

**ratio**of

**40:1**fuel mixture.

Likewise, people ask, how much oil do I need to mix 50 1?

You want to **mix** 2.6 ounces of **oil** to one gallon of gasoline for a **50**:**1** mixture. If you're **mixing** up two gallons of gasoline you will have to **mix** 5.2 ounces of **oil** to two gallons of gasoline for a **50**:**1** mixture.

**50**:**1** means for every **50** ounces of gasoline you need to mix in **1** ounce of oil. If you are using a **1** gallon gas can you would take 128 ounces (**1** gal) divided by **50** = 2.56.
