Second step: The mix!

First you need a jerry can of petrol, check your manufacturer’s manual to know the recommended unleaded. We recommend using a quantity of petrol that is a multiple of 5 (5L,10L,15L…), it will be easier to do the math.  

Our two-stroke oil cans are equipped with an integrated doser, it is super practical, just open the cap of the measuring side and press the can to fill it.

They are intended for a mixture at 2%, recommended percentage in regular use.

For more intense practices like motocross, enduro or race in the sand, you can go up to 3%. To find out the most suitable percentage for your bike and your use, check out the manufacturer’s manual.  

If you do not use the 2% mixture, then you will need a doser. Our dispenser has a double graduation in milliliters and liters but also percentages.

Here's how to determine the amount of engine oil to be added: 

5L (petrol) x 3% = 0.15 -> 150 millilitres of oil

(5 x 0.03)

Then pour the calculated amount of oil into the jerry can.

Tip

It is important to do the mix in the jerry can, do not add oil directly into the tank, oil and petrol must be well mixed to ensure proper lubrication of the engine.

Shake the jerry can for a minute so that the oil and petrol mix perfectly then pour your mixture into your fuel tank.

After any intervention on your bike, we recommend going for a small ride at cruising speed, this will allow you to control that everything is in place and that the operation has been carried out properly.

Enjoy your ride !
