    This is what I do, worked for me for over a year even though before that I did carry a petrol can on my way to the station bring it back, mix it, shake it then put it in the bike but thats just a piss take!

    Or the easier solution is when you go onto reserve, measure out the oil for 5l and put it in before you put in fuel, if you go over 5l then stick in enough oil to make up the difference...

    2 stroke is soposed to mix with petrol so just dump it in anytime, makes no diffrence, a always giv it a shake only if the tank was dry as a bone, other thn that dosnt matter, n that green oil is crap, for lorn motors what jus tick over fast, AF do good non synthetic oil or they recomend motul
