fuel / oil ratio - 1998 Mercury 40 HP
 

Sorry for the basic question - but been pilfering through the groups
and info online and still not sure what the fuel / oil ratio should be
for my engine. It's a 1998 Mercury 40 HP... could someone advise?
Also, what's the latest on running synthetics? Is that a religious
question? :)

Find yourself an Ams/Oil dealer in the phonebook. They make
the best synthetics in the business. Have been using it
since 1975 and have no problem.

50:1, but with the ethanol, I'd use 40:1

I run synthetics all the time. Of course I have different
engines
than you do, but I use synthetic oils in all my two-stroke
home/garden
equipment like trimmer, leaf blower, hedge clippers, etc.
The odd
thing is that I use, get this, FICHT oil and it actually
seems to help
- doesn't smell as bad, the starts are quicker and, this is
probably
totally subjective, a tad more power.

Is that a religious question? :)


Around here, you never know.
