Default Check the oil/fuel mixture?

     

Is there anyway to figure out what a current oil/fuel mixture is? With the bike coming back together soon, I want to make sure the current fuel/oil I have is mixed right, since I have 4 gallons left from the fall when the bike siezed.

If it seized on that gas I would pour the gas into your car and mix a new batch at a 32/1 ratio. If itís been there since the fall itís not good anyway.
I wouldnít trust it. Plainly not worth the risk.
A chemist could find what the ratio is but it might cost more than your rebuild.

I dont think I should pour it into my car, as it is already mixed..

But yeah, I might just toss it then.

Your car will burn it fine. Might smoke a tiny bit.
