Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
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.

Determine the amount of fuel you wish to add, for example 10 L or 20 L. Add 1/50 that amount of oil. Note the oil slightly increases total volume.

10 L fuel, 0.2 L oil, 10.2 L total
20 L fuel, 0.4 L oil, 20.4 L total

It mixes best if you add the oil first, and use the flowing fuel to help mix the tank, but it is even better to add premixed.

Agreed, but ensure you do not draw neat oil into the fuel line, such as putting oil into an empty tank. The engine is guaranteed to stop if you do.
