Question 2 cycle gas/oil mix question

The fan that my vol fire dept uses to ventilate structure fires has a 2 cycle motor that needs a 40:1 mix which is 1 gal of gas and 2.6 oz of oil. How do I get a 25:1 mix and a 50:1 mix for our other 2 cycle gizmos?

A 40:1 mix is supposed to be 3.2 Oz/ gallon.

25:1 mix is 5.12 Oz/gallon

50:1 mix is 2.56 Oz/gallon

If you are interested, 1 gallon = 128 Ounces

for example 128 divided by 40 = 3.2 Oz/gal
