    Default Putting oil in petrol Tank

    Dear All,



    Most of the people think why mechanic asks to put oil in petrol (Gas) tank even when there is side tank available (Yamaha Motorcycle).




    We have to understand deeply the process of this




    Always remember that two stroke Engine like Yamaha motorcycle or any other motorcycle does not have a proper lubericant function like four stroke motorcycles or engines. Even if we do put oil in engine and in its side tank still the engine does notget the best lubrication as four stroke engine. in a result the two stroke engine not only gets hot quicker but engine does require overhauling after some time. Now, because engine gets hot faster and piston head starts expending it needs some thing to keep the movement of piston head normal and and to decress heat in cylnder chamber we add oil in petrol. The oil in petrol helps the piston head to move easily through the chamber and keeps the cylinder head cool. You amy have noticed that the pump to squeez oil from side tank in yamaha not properly works after some time that also cause engine overheat. The important thing is that a proper quantity should be maintained while adding oil into petrol unless your motorcycle start missing. This is the main advantage four stroke engines have on two stroke engines. Four stroke engines last long but two stroke engines require lot of expence on its overhauling and putyting seprate oil for engine cooling.




    I hope you all now understand the basic function of adding oil in petrol tank.




    If you still need information on two stroke engine you can write me at

    True in a a way we don't need it but adding Oil in tank despite the Oil Pump working only helps cool the engine and make it more durable provided you don't mix more than ts actually required. It helps especially when one head's out for a long journey, not mentioning how hot it usually gets these days in Karachi. I don't see myself running my bikes without oil being mixed in petrol despite the oil pump being active.

    @yamaha135
    which bike do you have.

    Adding oil in tank also prevents from tanks rusting, I recommend adding oil in alternate refueling, if side pump is working well.

    My Father got 1992 Yamaha and still got its original engine. Not opened. He says never ever put oil in the tank.

    My oil pump of GTO125 also works fine, but I add a little bit oil in tank as well, if Suzuki Alto and RX115 says that dont mix oil, I wont, but who would pay if I get my engine ceased .

    Thumbs up

    I have met several 2 stroke enthusiasts over a period of 20 years. Most of them advocate addition of 2 stroke engine oil in the tank at a ratio of 1:30.(one part of oil to 30 parts of petrol ). It is true that manufacturer has provided oil pump for the purpose of lubrication in the combustion chamber but , very often the pump is not functioning properly. So added lubrication through fuel compensates for the risk. Over lubrication never does the kind of harm that comes from under lubrication.I own two 2 , 2 stroke bikes right now and have always owned one or the other yamaha and kawasaki. Personally I have always added oil to the fuel tank and it has been a safe and desirable practice with me.

    I personally think adding oil with petrol (specific ratio) prevents so other risks. Kawasaki, as I have noticed it gets very hot when not adding oil with petrol ( specific amount absolutely) despite of the fact that side tank is working properly.
    Or else the old one's dealing with 2 stroke engine can comment on it better
