I would go with XD 50 evinrude oil.

Yeah I second the xd 50 it is a sythetic blend. the xd 30 is plain old tcw 3 oil and is the least expensive and it would be ok but it does not have the carb x additive that helps keep carbon buildup to a min. The xd 100 is pure sythetic and would be the "best" but the cost is like $45 a gallon and I think that your motor is a bit of an oil hog if I remember correctly. I buy xd 50 in bulk from the dealer and only pay around 20 a gallon.

I would also use the Amsoil. I ran the Injector in my old Yamaha 25 horse oil injected and it was great.

i did the perferred customer thing from the oilman. best thing possible if you use enough oil. i run it in all 2-stroke stuff as well as my car. gets me discounts on boat oil, car oil, oil filter, air filter, and they have a varitey of other products as well including ngk sparkplugs, mothers car care products and more. i buy oil in 2-1/2 gallon jugs, saves even more $$$

I appreciate all the unsolicited comments.

Link for the HP Injector

Info: a " Preferred Customer " - pay a $20.00 per year membership fee and get all AMSOIL products for wholesale, saving about 25% (1 case of HP Injector or automotive engine oils will pay for it.)

Im on that program and it pays for itself easy. I use Amsoil in everything from my boat to auger, weedwacker, leaf blower, lawn mower etc. Love it. I live in Superior Wi. so I get it right at the warehouse.

Thanks again for the help guys, just picked up the HP Injector. Is it best to drain or burn up the oil in your tank? I have about 1/4 of the tank left.

Same question from me. Can you mix Amsoil with a little standard 2 stroke oil that is remaining in the oil reserve tank, or do you need to get it out of there?

do not mix oils! synthetics and petrolioum oils do not mix well at all!

So how much regular oil is to much before I add the Amsoil?

AMSOIL HP Injector is compatible to mix, but it is best to minimize mixing.

Draining an outboard injection oil tank is on most engines difficult, nearly impossible, or at best very sloppy.

Never take a chance on running out of oil!

I recommend run your current oil down to the low oil warning light/buzzer goes, then top the tank with the AMSOIL HP Injector. This way you minimize the mixing.

just switched over my fathers 89 evinrude to amsoil. we burnt up as much regular oil as we dared leaving only a little bit in the resevoir, then put a gallon of hp injector in. havent run it enough to notice the difference but i know we will! it says right on the jug to minimize mixing. buy the gallon jugs for a better deal.

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it.
