Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Oil to Gas conversion

I need to know how to figure 20 to 1. For a 5gallon gas tank and power punch oil mixture.

Thank you

The 20:1 means for each gallon of gas, you need to add 1/20 gallon of oil. Nothing measures such small amounts in gallons, so you also need to know that 1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces, so for each gallon of gas,you need to add 6.4 ounces of oil. Five gallons would require 32 ounces of oil, but the total mixture would be 5.25 gallons and might not fit in the can.
