Mixing oil with the petrol is a bit of an annoyance, especially when you fill up on a regular basis. Until now, there was only a small measuring jug in which you poured your oil, then emptied it into the petrol tank. It’s not only time consuming, but messy. I always carried rolled up kitchen roll in the jug and after a long run or rally, it was very messy and 2 Stroke oil everywhere in my toolbox by the time I got home.
Now SIP have released a measured squeeze bottle which has a locking lid. It holds half a litre and is marked for 2% 3% and 4% mix ratios.
I was a bit concerned it would be too fat to fit the small gap between my saddles. It fits, but at a small angle. Nothing to worry about.
My only concern is the measurement marks and that they may eventually rub off. For the time being I’ll sit the bottle in a bag to help preserve the markings. This is a small point on an otherwise good idea that make petrol stops less of a mess.
