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.

Thanks guys, where is the best place in MN to get that type of oil? Not sure who carries it locally (St. Cloud)

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.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
