AMSOIL Question

Recommended Posts

I recently inherited a 1989 2 stroke Evinrude motor. It runs fine and has never had any problems whatsoever. My question is what are the opinions of using AMSOIL to mix with the gas. If you are in favor what kind of AMSOIL would be the one to use with this motor.

It is a premix or a oil injection motor?

Amsoil Saber Outboard works well in a premix. I am not sure about the Oil injected motors, but I am sure they have something.

It's a premix...

where would I get some of the Sabre? I've never seen it at retail or home improvement stores.

Thanks

shadypaddler, This '89, is it off a 3 or 6 gallon tank, or a built in tank (in the boat)? If it's a 3 or 6 gallon tank, GO FOR IT!!! I have been running a '77 Johnson 35hp @ 100/1 Amsoil for like the last 8 years and I will NEVER go back to dino-oil again!! That 35 runs better EVERY time I take it out and I've got no STINK or blue cloud behind the boat!! Once you use it, you'll never go back, trust me!!!I have all my 2 strokes running on Amsoil now and It's GREAT!! If you premix, go with the 100:1 premix, for injector, use the injector. We need to know more about your motor to advise you on the Amsoil you should use. Phred52

I run the HP Injector in my pre-mix, but I wouldn't hesitate to use the 100:1 Sabre Outboard either as I run the Sabre Professional in my auger, string trimmer etc. with good results.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
