The proportion is 100% oil, don't mix it with anything. Put in two quarts, stand the bike straight up and check the oil. Add one half quart at a time until it registers full on the stick or in the sight glass.

Do you mix oil with gas


Joseph, Only when engine is 2 stroke, or if it has oil injection you do not have to mix, the oil injection does this for the engine.

I have a 1993 Honda 125cc was told to mix gas but these oil in crankcase do I need to mix?


You would never mix any fuel and oil for the crankcase. If it is a 2-stroke engine, the fuel and 2-stroke oil will need to be mixed before entering the cylinder. Some engines have an automatic mixing setup - those have a separate oil reservoir for 2-stroke oil, but it will usually be a plastic tank, located nowhere near the crankcase. On a "4matic" engine, it fires like a 4 stroke, but there is no crank case, and the fuel needs to be mixed like a 2 stroke. What is the vehicle you are referencing? A dirt bike or street bike? It seems the CR125 and NR125 are both 2 stroke engines, so somehow the fuel needs to be mixed with 2-stroke oil. Can you take a picture of the crankcase oil cap?

I need to know the oil gas mixture for a 2000 yamaha pw90. I couldn't find my make and model so I just choose one so please ignor. It wouldn't let me continue without picking one.


If your model is the 90 then it should be a 4 stroke engine you put 10w30 or 10w40 oil in the engine and gas in the tank. Do not mix oil into the gas tank on a 4 stroker you will knacker the engine big time.

If however you have a definite 2 stroke model, you have 2 oil tanks one for the gearbox, and the plastic one under the seat for the engine.

Gearbox tank fill with 10w30 oil the plastic tank under the seat with 2 stroke oil. The 2 stroker mixes the oil and gas so you don't need to.

Do you have to mix the gas with oil on a 89 fz600r? And if so what's the ratio?


No, you do not need to mix the gas and oil because it is a 4-stroke engine and has separate compartments for oil and gas. The only time you would need to mix oil and gas is for 2-stroke engines.

I have a 1984 suzuki rm 125 it has always ran good for me. until recently it just putts and runs for maybe 20 secounds and then stalls. i tried to run start it and it kinda fired up but there was way more...


Are you mixing regular motor oil in the fuel? Doesn't this bike have a reservoir for 2-stroke oil? You must use 2-stroke oil in that reservoir. Buy it online if you can't find it locally.

I have a 1997 yamaha 500 vmax snowmobile that the oil pump is not working. And Idon't want to replace it, I just want to mix oil and gas. But I don't know the iol to gas mix . I have contacted several...


The standard gas/oil mix is 32 to 1. That means 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil per gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil. Only use two stroke engine oil. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

86 kawasaki kx250 rich mix problem


"Learn to like smoke for awhile. Smell the aroma". Pardon the humor. I couldn't resist. Chances are there is oil built up in the crankcase. It is going to take some time for the oil to dissipate. How long? I don't know. It all depends on how much is in there. Cleaning the muffler is no help since the oil burning is coming from the crank not the muffler. If you are careful, and keep a vigilant eye, you could cut the gas/oil mix in half to 64 to 1 instead of the normal 32 to 1. That would mean only 2 ounces of oil per gallon instead of the normal 4 ounces. Let the crank add the rest. This will help burn the crank oil excess, but BE CAREFUL. When the crank drys up you had best not ride until more oil is added to the gas.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Do i have to mix 2 stroke oil on the gas for the 4 stroke bikes or just add regular gas on the tank? if is what is the scale for the mix?


DO NOT mix oil in the gas on your four stroke engine. You will foul the spark plug(s), build up deposits on the valves and head, and make a smokey, smelly mess. A two stroke engine uses the fuel/oil mix to lubricate the engine before being used as fuel. A four stroke engine has a separate lubrication system and does not normally burn any oil. As the name implies, a two stroke engine works in two strokes. The first stroke is downward, where the fuel/oil mix and air are drawn into the cylinder. The momentum from the crankshaft counterbalance or force from the other cylinder(s) drive the piston back up compressing the mix, and the spark plug sparks at or slightly before the top of the stroke. The rapid combustion of the fuel/oil/air mix drives the piston down, which is the power stroke, and then the cycle starts all over again. A four stroke engine has an intake stroke down taking in the fuel/air mix, a compression stroke up, a power stroke down as the fuel/air mix is ignited at or before the top of the stroke, and a exhaust stroke up before starting all over again. A four stroke is much cleaner and more reliable than a two stroke, but it is heavier and has less torque. A two stroke engine is much lighter and has more torque, but takes more maintenance.
