Default 18% to 20% oil content

How much oil do I add to a gallon of 18% oil content fuel to make it 20%?

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Assuming your percentages are "by volume", add 3.2 fl. oz. of oil to a gallon of 18% oil fuel to raise the percentage to 20%.

I'm currently running Saito 1.80s. It's my understanding that 20% oil is preferred - not sure if it's that big of a difference than 18%. Any comments are appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

18% oil is fine. The big Saito's love 30% nitro heli fuel.

If you gotta have a 4 stroke then Saito/YS is your thing. However, for a slight power edge and way better economy the OS 160FX is the way to go. Mine is turning a Mejzlik 18x8 @8700 on 3% nitro. Also running reduced oil content of 12%. Only uses about an oz a minute. The throttle response is instant.
