RE: gear oil at oil change
Is there a ratio that you guys are using of gear oil to overall oil capacity? I've got a smaller engine, so 1 gallon would be about 1/4 of my total oil capacity, which doesn't seem like a good idea at that ratio.

a 2250 holds something like 14 gallons so 13 + 1 gal lube so 8% gear lube to oil ratio so if your capacity is 5 gallons something like .4gallons will be the same ratio. if it were me ied just put in 1/2gallon.

10% of total capacity is a good round number. And has been thrown around the site here. This is all speculation and close monitoring and oil sampling should be done if you're venturing into uncharted waters.

10% nominal (or 20% max. on an air cooled engine).
