The key is to recognize that a quart is a quarter of a gallon so divide the 1/2 pint of oil by four & the gallon of gasoline by four & you have the number of pints per quart. Convert to ounces of oil after doing this calculation to give ounces of oil per quart of gasoline. Work it from there & you have it. Give it a try with this info & then I will send the solution – but you may not need it after this.RTEnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3776665703590564248.post-56810823838082307102019-11-04T19:03:11.321-05:002019-11-04T19:03:11.321-05:00I came up with 1 oz, oil, 31 oz.

Gas. <br /><br />I calculated number of ounces in the gallon and quart, and based on that, use 1/8 of 8 oz. of oil for the quart, and 25% of fuel amount used for a gallon. rounded off allowing for gunk. I cant find my original scribbling for this, just remember the percentages.

You did not state how many oz are in a quart? Apply that to the 16/1 ratio.

The question was “how many fluid ounces of oil should be added to each quart of gasoline for this generator” meaning that the total mixture would be larger than a quart. <br /> <br />When I get fuel for my snow blower I put one oz. of oil in an empty can & take it to the gas station to have them put in exactly one gallon of gasoline so the can holds 1 gal of gasoline + 1 oz. of oil. I added one oz. of oil for a gal of gasoline per the instructions for my snow blower. I worked this problem like it was my snow blower.<br /> <br />1/4 of a gal = 1 quart & 1/4 of 0.5 pint = 0.125 pint or one eight of a pint<br /> <br />There are 16 oz. in a pint or two oz. in an eighth of a pint so you add 2 oz. of oil for a quart of gasoline.<br /> <br />I give you an “A” instead of your usual “A+” – great job as always.<br />RTEnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3776665703590564248.post-86882319346889003752019-10-28T23:39:49.163-04:002019-10-28T23:39:49.163-04:00Hi Doug - I did the math on this quiz and if i am ...Hi Doug - I did the math on this quiz and if i am reading it right you need 16 parts gasoline for each one part oil. 1 gallon to 1/2 pint which works out to 128 ounces to 8 ounces or 1/16th.Once this equation is identified i just did the math and came up with the following answer. Not sure how far you wanted me to carry out the decimal points but i stopped at 4.<br /><br />answer = 30.1175 ounces of Gasoline and 1.8825 ounces of oil.<br />HowKnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3776665703590564248.post-51917110098132971682019-10-27T23:21:27.299-04:002019-10-27T23:21:27.299-04:00Congrats - the first to get it right.Congrats - the first to get it right.RTEnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3776665703590564248.post-22096671424227986412019-10-27T23:20:27.243-04:002019-10-27T23:20:27.243-04:00Doug: Answer 2oz
