A entire bottle I thought it's like a cap full per gallon or something. I never store my bike either, in the middle of winter a 45 degree day is enough to get out.

man every time i say something about it being cold for me to ride i get my butt chewed out but this is my first year riding and i dont have all the winter gear yet. riding gear gets expensive im sure yall know. plus right now im used to the warmer riding and i like it alot better than the colder stuff i guess. hopefully next year i will be stocked up. plus the price of gas will be $4.5 so the bike will be the beneficial choice.

Sorry, you're right.
That wasn't a very constructive answer on my part.
I apologize.
