Australian Greg Bennet, a motorcycle racer and owner of TZ350.net, a web site for old Yamaha lovers had heard about the Accu-Mix jug and asked for a sample to review.
This is what he said..
The “Accu-Mix” Fuel mixing container.
Someone once said that the simplest ideas are always the best. 202 Racing’s brilliant “Accu-Mix” container proves this to be true and I keep saying to myself: “Why didn’t I think of this?”
Pre-mixing two stroke fuel has never been easier, cleaner and more accurate. Throw away those dirt collecting, oil wasting baby milk bottles and other measuring flasks and buy yourself an “Accu-Mix”, it’s a purchase you won’t regret.
Basically, the container is a standards approved red plastic unit divided into two compartments:
1. Compartment “A” for your straight fuel.
2. Compartment “B” for your 2 stroke oil.
All you do is simply fill “A” to the level of fuel you need to mix. This compartment is divided into ten “units” of 0.6 litres each.
As an exercise, I filled mine (refer to the photo) to line number 6, which equates to 3.6 litres.
Next, choose the fuel/oil ratio you require from the eight common ones embossed on the side of “B” (25:1 in our exercise) and fill this compartment up to line 6 also. Screw both O-ring sealed caps on and shake to mix the fuel. “Mission accomplished”. 3.6 litres of 2 stroke fuel mixed accurately at 25:1.
As little as 0.6 litres of fuel can be mixed accurately at ratios from 15:1 to 50:1 with the “Accu-Mix”.
The unit even has fuel and oil marks in standard Metric as well as Imperial measurements should you need to mix up a “special brew” other than the eight provided for on the container.
User instructions are moulded onto the side of the “Accu-Mix” for those requiring reminding of how to use it but once you’ve done it once, you realise how incredibly simple it is to do.
I’m impressed, do yourself a favour and buy one of these.
