My dictionary says, "4 A long swallow, or a deep puff, as on a pipe or cigar." So, you need to put three swallows of oil in each gallon of gass.

Seriously now. It probably should say 3 ounces. Post the make of your bike so that someone who is less of a wise guy can let you know what mixture you need.

the bike is a garelli super sport 81 i think

Your better off to throw away that silly thing, it`s not very accurate. I took one off a 78 VIP Garelli. Just premix. Doug D.

Oh, some of the garelli Super sports had an oil tank on the side of the frame that manually pumped oil into the tank after you fill it. Does yours have a little clear/white tank on the side of the frame? It might have been removed. They probably mean 3 pulls on the oil pump knob for every gallon of gas you put in the bike. I'd just run 40:1 premix.
