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?

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.

    • 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.
