Carrying two stroke oil on DualSport rides

Wally World comes through again. I was looking for a SMALL container to hold 2 stroke oil when out riding my 300 XC-W on Dual Sport loops longer than ~90 miles/shorter than ~150 miles. This bottle is clear on the side and calibrated by ounces between 2 and 6.....perfect. Invest $1.94, dump the crap oil in the recycle bin, and refill with Motorex. Now I have a handy/leak proof(?)/small/calibrated container designed to carry oil (rather than carrying a 1 liter Motorex bottle)....that'll free up a lot of room in my Mojavi Saddlebags!

What are you using?

Liquid Amoxicillin prescription bottle. Very leak proof, and it holds exactly enough for adding one gallon at a gas station. The DS rides I do are all less than 100 miles, and my 3.4 gallon IMS tank plus one extra gallon is plenty for the day.

I just use the small bottle that gets me a 5 gallon 50:1 mix.
I pour in half then add 2.5 gals at pump.

Just bought that on your recommendation. Perfect. Just what I needed for my Kdx with stock tank. I have heard that the bottles from store bought perks work well too....

To resurrect an old post...

A old Stabil bottle works well for shorter 2T rides when extra oil is needed.

I use this:



Cost $5 for the junk, poured it in the wife's car.. Holds enough oil for about 2.5gl, and I put marks on it for each gallon so I know what's going in.

Nice and thin, fits in my fender bag and there if I need it.

Thinking about taking my 250 on a 750 mile DS ride. Have a 5 gallon fuel tank and am going to try and carry 2 liters in a MSR Deluxe Dromedary Bag.



Have never tried that long of a DS ride on my 2 stroke. Stupid idea??

stupid idea? hell no! sounds like a blast to me!

i used to carry a quart of premix oil & a spare tube in one of those travel bags one would put toiletries and such in, strapped to my front fender. ran hundreds of hard desert miles like that, just fine.

I used to carry it in a couple baby (plastic) bottles bungies under the seat. They are graduated so you can do the right mix without having to wait till you have to fill up, and have a lid that won't leak.
