Q: I purchased a gallon of quality two-stroke oil to mix in my leaf blower. I lost the directions on how much oil I would need to mix for a 50:1 mixture. Can you help?
A: I sure can. 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. I would recommend using fresh gasoline that has an octane rating of 89. Remember, 2.6 ounces for one gallon and 5.2 ounces for two gallons of fresh gasoline for a 50:1 mixture.
