Big outboard 2-stroke oil ??

7 posts in this topic

Wanted to know what you guys/gals are using for 2-stroke oil in your 100hp+ motors. I also don't want to spend a ton of money and looking for low smoke.

Only use Yamalube in my Yamaha. Expensive but well worth it if you consider the alternative. Gander Mountain sometimes has sales on Merc or Yamaha oil just have to time it right.

i bought some amsoil sabre outboard oil and it says to run it 100:1 even though my motor calls for 50:1, does anyone think this is safe. i know amsoil is the best but half the oil in the gas? anyone else running this stuff? i guess i would like to hear from someone else before i take this leap. thanks.

Nice!

Thanks guy's!

My neighbor purchased the Amsoil HP injector at the Autovalue in Monticello for $28.00 1gal, I guess at Cabelas the semi syn Merc was over $30.00 and so was NAPA.

I may try that, He stated that he likes it so far.

I have a 69, 70 H.P. Johnson I run Amsoil in mixed 80 to one for the last 4 years, no problems yet. Idles better and no smoke. This year I went 70-1 on fuel mix.

    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
    • They look nice but but they also look expensive for what they are.
    • I worked all weekend and got the siding up.  I was hoping to have the diamond plate and the roof on too, but I guess that will wait for next weekend along with the ramp furring strips and wiring.  I should be able to put up the plywood for the roof and the furring strips during the week in my shed since I won't need heat for that.       I called around Friday looking for a spray foamer in my area.  Apparently our local painting company no longer does spray foam.  I had guys that weren't interested, to guys that would do it for 2000 if I supplied a heated building to do it in.  Finally I found a guy about an hour away from me who has done several fish houses before and quoted me 1600 and can do it in his own shop.  I was expecting between 1000 and 1500, so it's just a little over my high end.  Does that sound reasonable on a 21' fish house?
