    Default anybody know how to? (fuel related)

    I thought i would be clever, and fill the jerrycan with 20l of fuel.



    Normally i do 15L and add my two stroke,



    however with the 20L added, i dont think i will get the 200ml of oil in, has anyone tried it?



    or am i going to have to top the wifes car up and start again?

    I usually put the oil in first, half a litre, and still get 20 litres of petrol in. So you should have no problem if you are adding the oil afterwards.



    When you want to use the fuel, make sure you tip the can away from the spout as you open the lid.



    Just curious though, if it is for your 447 200 ml for 20 litres is 100:1. Shouldn't you be adding 400 ml?

    If you tip the can back you can get nearly 21 litres in most, if you fil up the handle Then as Bob says tip it back, and have a big funnel. 200ml is nowhere near enough oil.

    Put the oil in first. That way it doesn't matter very much if you then put 19.6, or 20 litre of petrol on top.



    Antother reason is that you can then run a system that ensures you never arrive at a race meeting and wonder "did I put the oil in that can; is that petrol or two stroke mix?"



    I number the jerry cans with Tippex. Its easily removed but doesn't wash off with petrol.

    Think i may have goofed.



    I thought it was 50ml to 5litres (50:1)



    so if i work it out correctly its 100ml to 5 litres

    Errr,

    Does anybody know of a test to prove if you have actually put oil in your Fuel??



    Yeah, I know, you put the oil in first and then fill with Fuel

    BUT

    I've been using 2 Jerrycans for Petrol (only) in the off season (its complicated), but my dad (Honest, it wasn't me!) moved all my cans into one place and now......



    I would just 'burn' it in my car, but thats the fastest way to kill the catalyst (my old car is off the road).



    wheres the <font size="4">[color = red]HELP[/COLOR][/COLOR] smiley??

    Pour a bit into a dish, and let it evaporate, you should be left with the oil in the saucer. Colour is another possibility, depending on which oil you use. The blue millers stuff dyes the fuel bright blue, others are less obvious.



    All the ex bradfield guys use a very simple system, when you add the oil, put a cable tie around the handle. Cut them off before you go to the petrol station.
