Can someone help a Cableguy out?
I get mixed up between Litres and Gallons all the time. My snow blow says it takes 50:1 mixed gas. So I bought a small jerry can 1.25 USGallons.
If I fill can (1.25 Gallons) how much oil do I put in????
Sorry for such a silly question but I can't remember the last time I mixed gas

I believe 50/1 means 2.5 ounces oil per gallon. But don’t take my word on it, I can’t remember my name half the time.
Or you could use this.
Lets see if I’m right.

Stay warm there Cable Guy.
Here is the your answer. btw the 50:1 works liters or gallons. I'm using gal.s
There are 128 oz. in a gal. You need 1/50 of that, which equals 2.56 oz. . I'd make it 3 oz for the gal. more oil is better than less.
I think you said your container is a 1.25 gal. so , that will be 160 oz. Then you would need 1/50th of 160 which would be 3.2 oz. or 3.5 oz. (safe)
Hope that helps.
