50:1 gas mixed with 2 cycle marine oil in motor that doesn't mix?

7 posts in this topic

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I just bought a new outboard, and I have the gas tank full from the outboard I was using before. The gas is brand new, and I mixed the oil in before the '85 9.9 motor crapped out on me. So my question is if I can use this mixed gas in my new 96 four stroke 9.9 where the oil and gas aren't mixed?

Thanks for the help!

Dump it in your truck. I wouldn't run it in the outboard.

Lawn Mower gas......

Your lawm mower will burn up that 50:1 without any issues, might smoke a bit, but it wont hurt it. I wouldn't put it in your outboard though.

Agreed. You be be sorry if you it in your outboard. They are a lot more sensitive then your vehicle or lawn mower.

Thanks guys! I was figuring on using it that way, but I thought I should check.

I guess I've never thought it would bother it at all. First, the spark is much hotter today than it was in 1985 insuring more responsive ignition and more complete combustion. Second, 50:1 is pretty light oil raio and I would have guessed the engine wouldn't care less. I've run mixed gasoline in motors all the time without issue. I figure the added lubricant doesn't hurt either.

I've never actually tried it and I'm not a mechanic so maybe I'm wrong but I personally wouldn't hesitate to try it. If you're really concerned you could mix it 50:50 with raw gas until you've used it up.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
