On pre-mix bikes I always try to pour in the oil alongside the petrol as this seems to mix it nicely. I use a suitable size bottle for 5 litres at a time. Also, switch off the fuel tap before refuelling and give the bike a shake before switching back on. Good two-stroke oil usually mixes quite well, unlike the straight mineral oil we used back in the 16:1 sixties.
