2 stroke oil

12 posts in this topic

I know that the oil for my ice auger has gone smokeless but does anybody sell smokeless oil for my outboard in a gallon size jug? Sure would make it nice without the smoke blowing back in when trolling with the wind.

You need to check out the Amsoil products. Just do a quick search on the web, find a local dealer, many sell from their house and are very knowledgeable about the synthetic oil products.

Check out Amsoil is right. I now use it in everything but my truck. I would use it in my truck but it had a ton of miles on it before I realized how good the Amsoil really was. My next vehicle will run Amsoil.

Put my first tank full of Amsoil premix (saber outboard) in my 2 stroke 1998 75hp outboard. So far so good, but only been out once. To chicken to jump directly to the 100:1 ratio, starting out with 80:1 for now.

I run 100:1 Amsoil Saber Pro in my auger since almost new the past two seasons. Runs cleaner, stronger, and starts easier.

Is yours a pre-mix or an oil-injected engine?

If oil injected use the AMSOIL HP Injector. It is available in quarts and gallons.

If pre-mix use the Saber Outboard. It is available in 8-oz bottles that will mix 5 gallons at 80-1 or 6 gallons at 100-1; and quarts that will mix 20 gallons at 80-1 or 25 gallons at 100-1. (NOTE: this is a different product from the Saber Professional for your auger, string cutter, chain saw and other air cooled 2-cycle pre-mix engines.)

My motor uses 50:1 premix. So would I mix Amsoil at the same ratio? Someone told me once that if Amsoil is used it can be mixed at 100:1, is this true?

At work we run amsoil in all 2 strokes. We mix 8 ounces to 2 1/2 gallons. I believe that would be 100:1. It works unbelievabe. We were going through 6 to 8 saws a month and when we switched to amsoil it went down to 1 every 2 months. And that's because of not mixing the gas. Granted we are not using this in marine equipment. But I would assume it would work there also.

Thanks OilMan I should have clarified. It is a Merc Opti. It has been absolutely bullet proof for 6 years and being a creature of habit I am nervous to change to something new. I don't want to screw up a good thing even if it smokes a little. How many others out there are running the HP injector and have you had any problems? Would I have to completely clean out the reservoir or can you add the Amsoil to what is in there if I go that route?

This question seems to come up several times every season - loads of people using it.

Changing over - AMSOIL is compatable to mix with petroleum and the other synthetics being used, but it is better to minimize the mixing. At best it is a sloppy job to try to drain the oil reservoir, and some are nearly impossible to drain. Just run your current oil down to the warning level then top off with the AMSOIL HP Injector.

Russell - the Saber Outboard is designed to be used as lean as 100-1 (8oz to 6 gal) and AMSOIL gives safe lubrication this lean, but there are many who are unconfortable so lean - you won't hurt it at 50-1 (16 oz to 6 gal). Even at 50-1 you will rarely see smoke with AMSOIL.

My suggestion, start with the leanest you are comfortable with, they go leaner toward 100-1 as you see it performing in your engine.

Oilman, thanks for the info. I have heard great things about Amsoil and would like to try it in my motor.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
