I used a Ratio Rite for years but they can be a PITA after using them because you have to clean the oil residue out after pouring the oil out. I recently saw they have a lid you can get for them now but I also saw this Maxima measuring bottle.
It sure is easier to use and there is no messy clean up after use. Wipe the pouring edge with a paper towel to get the oil drop off, put the lid back on and back into the cabinet until I need it the next time.
This is what I would consider to be an essential tool in your garage. Buy a couple of them and use one for measuring two stroke oil, one for transmission oil changes, and one for four stroke oil changes. They make measuring easy and I can pre-measure my fluids days in advance and just screw the lid on. When I am changing the oil or about to mix two stroke gas, I already have my pre-measured fluid ready to go, so I can just pour and keep going.
This thing is sweet, Im a stickler about keeping fuel/oil and engines clean. The lid means no crap getting in while sitting. Chart is laid out great and for 5 gallons of gas @ 32:1 just fill the container all the way up for 20 oz.
It's a great bottle whether you're using it for pre-mix or just to measure out oil to put into your bikes engine, and the price is perfect. It comes with a lid so you can store your oil in it on the shelf although with no oring on the lid I don't think I'd use it as a transport bottle.
I really like that this measuring cup has a lid this way you can bring some premeasured premix with you if needed. My only gripe is that KTM 2 strokes call for 60:1 in a lot of their bikes and that ratio is not on the cup so I had to look it up and write it on with a sharpie. Also works well for measuring other fluids if needed.
The bottle is nice for measuring fluids and keep the container clean when not in use. Downside is since the cap screws on the top allows fluid when being pored to run down the side because it's not slide surface like ratio rite.
Best two stroke mix bottle I've ever had and I've had several through the years. Super easy you just fill the oil to the line corresponding to the gallons of gas and mix ratio you use. It's that simple. No more math, no more guessing. It's unreal how easy it is to use.
Let's face it. Mixing oil and gas can get messy. For those of you who are wimpy enough to be bothered by getting a little greasy, but not quite wimpy enough to ride a four stroke, this mixing bottle is great.
I don't do math. This bottle is easy to read and clearly labeled. Also has a screw on top so the little bit of residual oil left in the measuring bottle just stays in there until next time you use it. BRAPP!
I have purchased two of these bottles. The first bottle had a lip more flimsy than a card board box in the rain. It leaked 2-stroke oil all over my tools on my way to riding destination. The second bottle I purchased was a little better. I feel like the quality of the bottle plastic is lacking and the lid could be designed to seal better. The measuring guides on the side are awesome though!
before I bought this I used my brothers flimsy ratio bottle, it constantly got dents so the ratio was off. This Quick Mix works great! The plastic is very durable and the measures are precise. Maxima makes great products. I use their engine oil (K2) and I'm about to buy their transmission oil (MTL). They make great products
