Stihl br420c fuel capacity?

I have a 04 or 03 Stihl br420c back pack and was wondering if anyone knows what the fuel capacity is on it. Reason being I don't want to mix a gallon tank that is going to set all winter. I'd rather just mix it 50.1 directly into the unit.
My guess is about a 1/4 of a gallon.

It holds 50 ounces, so that makes it easy. One ounce of oil and the rest in fuel.
