2 Stroke Oil for 1976 85hp Evinrude

5 posts in this topic

What would the best oil be for this motor? Is it worth using a synthetic or any of the "fancy" oils? Would they cut down on smoking?

Thanks,

Evinrude/Johnson XD30 will do just fine. The key is oil rated TCW3 if you choose a different make.

A 1976? Wasn't that before oil injection?

AMSOIL will definitely reduce smoke!

And reduce emissions (65% reduction or more)!

And reduced oil slick!

And reduce engine wear - double engine life!

And eliminate carbon buildup!

And eliminate spark plug fouling!

Pre-mix, use AMSOIL Saber Outboard and you can use it as lean as 100-1

And the price isn't bad - $10.10 sugg retail per qt to mix 25 gallons of gas.

I am not an amsoil dealer and recommend the amsoil oil. My 75 ficht runs all summer on one gallon of HP injector oil, while other guys I know are going thru 2 and 3 gallons of Quicksilver or Evenrude oil.
