in 1948 I don't think they had the refined oils that we have today.
8oz of oil to a US Gallon would be a 16:1 mix ratio which is correct.
anything less and you run the very possible risk of a burn out.......

This is just the gas/oil mix. I am not going to enter the
ethanol vs nonethanol debate.

running, tuneup etc. - - - visit https://www.aomci.org/
