The oil on the synthetic bottle i have just brought recomends a 2- 4% mixing ratio.
Whats does this mean please?,what is 2% of a gallon or 5 litres? Maths are not one of my strong points.
I know the standard mix is 20'1 but what is that expressed as a percentage please as i would like to know what the manufacter is actually recomending
Thank you in advance

When my interest was in still in vespas they always expressed the oil mix as a pecentage,if i recall correctly 2% = 50:1 and 4% = 25:1.

So 2% would be 91cc of oil per gallon and 4 % 182cc .

But i am by no means certain of this as i cant lay my hands on the stuff relating to it but some one on here will confirm or shoot me down.

Wish i could get out of the house for a blast but im still pissed from yesterday.

Ted's Christmas maths is spot on. 2% is 50:1 and 4% is 25:1. Yamaha's originally recommended 20:1 would be 5%. I think the JD at 100% is probably a better choice though.

% is based on quantity and is relative to the amount to be mixed in so
2% of 1 gallon is the same ratio as 2% of 4 gallons, but it equates to 4 times a much

eg - there are 4480 ml in a gallon so you would add 2% of that figure or 90 ml (rounded up)

so if you put in 2 gallons you would still put in 2%, but you would be adding 2% of 8960 ml (2 gallons) therefore you would add 180ml of oil..................clear as mud, I know

the equation is

4480 x 2 = 90ml
100


or


8960 x 2 = 180ml
100
