Gas mixture for 1980 Sachs Suburban

I just got a 1980 Sachs Suburban. I wanted to make sure I make the gas mixture right. The gas cap says 1:50.

Re: Gas mixture for 1980 Sachs Suburban

Then use 1:50 (or 50:1 as we usually say).

Should be fine with any petroleum-based 2-cycle oil. If you use synthetic, then check the instructions on the bottle.

So would that mean 50 gals of gas to 1 gal of oil? Thanks for the help

Re: Gas mixture for 1980 Sachs Suburban

Lol, 50 parts gas, to 1 part oil.. so yes... you could do that in gallons... but that gas would go bad before you could use all of it! lol.

I reccomend mixing it more on the 45:1 to 40:1 side... that way you can ensure everything's getting good lubrication.

Could I just use the mixture used for my 2-cycle weed wacker? You know how you get that little bottle of 2 cycle oil with it and add it to 1-gal of gas?
