I now keep 3x redex bottles. Have used them in my 120d not the RX.

Labels now removed. They are 250ml and have markings on the side too.

I put 1x 250ml per tank full in.

Where do you keep your Premix?

Got my clear 100ml bottles off eBay, cost about £6 for 10. Makes measuring it much easier. Me and the missus both have a Rex that's why I have so manyImage I keep three in my centre console, perfect fitImage
I use approx 75ml per £30 of fuel and don't premix every 4th visit to avoid build upImage

Also where I keep a litre bottle of Motul 710, I never knew it was originally for the tyre repair kit! :lol:
I just refill the 1l bottle from the 5l bottle I keep in the shed.

I only keep the 2T oil in the car to top up the Sohn tank if it runs low, given that the car has a Sohn adapter fitted is there any need to premix ? I thought not?

With pre mixing I guess it should be put right before you fill up at station so it mixes well when you fill tank?

I'm going give Carl's advice of using the engine oil as premix. I did wonder with any premixing does fuel pump carry on OK? Or is oil diluted enough not to give any trouble?

Possibly a bit less important, but I believe most say to carry on with premixing too.
