No need to get crappy about anything dude. I will tell you with modern oils that is way too much oil if you are using a concentrate. 40:1 is probably more like it. Way too much oil in your mix causes a motor to run poorly and will displace your gasoline in the mix which is your actual coolant.In 1966 you had poor quality oil and needed a lot more just to get by. Fast forward to 2012....not the case.
