Hi, this is Jon and in this clip we'll be mixing oil and gasoline. On four cycle?s engines, you have your oil and your gasoline separate. The oil is filled via an oil filler tube and then the oil is going to sit in the crank case and then your gasoline is going to be filled into your gas tank and that's going to be fed through your carburetor. On two cycle engines, you need to mix the gas and the oil, before you put it into the gas tank. There's no separate area for the oil. If you take a look at the gas cap, it is clearly identified that you want to mix it fifty to one. When you mix your oil and your fuel, you want to make sure that you purchase two stroke engine oil only. It is a little bit different from your traditional four stroke engine oil. Also when you purchase your two stroke engine oil, you want to read that back because that's going to tell you exactly how much oil, to put with how much gas. This particular small container of oil says that I mix this entire container with one gallon of gas. Now, my container of gas, holds two and a half gallons of gas, so I'm going to need two full little bottles and a half of another little bottle, of oil, to put in it. You always want to make sure that you have your gas in an approved container and that you're mixing it in the container, not anywhere else.
