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.

How full do you want the can?
4 L of petrol (gasoline to me) is also 4000 ml.
1/20th of that is is 200 mL of oil (0.2 L).
Thus, you would have 4.2 L of mixture.

If you wanted to go as close to full as possible, there are 21 "parts" of total mixture, 1 part oil, 238 mL, and 20 parts petrol, 4.76 L.

If you haven't done this before, compute the oil for a predetermined amount of fuel, and put the oil in the fuel can first. Then dispense the proper amount of fuel. Adding the fuel last will largely take care of the mixing.
