It depends on what fuel you are starting with. Your best bet is just to buy fuel that already has a blend of castor and synthetic oils in it.

just add an extra OZ of castor to one gal of whatever(>15%) and you'll be fine for starters but do get stuff for 4 strokers after that.

I run a extra 2 oz. of castor just for insurance. A habbit I got into in the 70's from reading engine tests from the designers of the time. Fore some reason, the extra 2 oz in 15% really wakes up my webra 55 and 35 speed, the Jetts like it also. Just a little insurance, and the things seem to run foreaver and ever. After around 11 years of reliable scooting, I would not sell my Jett 35, peroid. I just may take it with me!!! ENJOY
