50 to 1 ratio

Postby Rick » Tue Apr 06, 2004 5:42 am

I need help in figuring a 50 to 1 gas to oil ratio.
This is for an outboard motor, I can not get it right
a little too rich or not rich enough.
Please start with 20L gas to how much oil
for 50 to 1.
Thanks for your help.

You are adding oil at a 50:1 ratio.

This means that for every liter of fuel, you will add 1/50th of a liter of oil.

1 liter * 1/50 = 0.02 liters, or 20 ml.

For every liter of gas, add 20 ml of oil. For 20 liters of oil you would add 20 l * 20 ml/l = 400 ml of oil.
