Any TC-W3 2cycle marine oil will work in that motor. For example, Evinrude/Johnson XD30, Quicksilver Premium (red label), LubriMatic TC-W3, Yamalube 2cycle just to name a few. Do you know if the motor was properly winterized? If the motor has been siting a few years the carbs might need attention as well. You may also want to change the lower unit oil.:thumbsup:

How did you test the VRO? I'd recommend you run 50 to 1 gas oil mix till you see if the engine is pulling oil from the oil tank. A little 24 to 1 won't hurt anything. Then after that give the engine a good decarboning with Seafoam.

Dunk, yes when i first got the boat, i hooked it up to a portable tank with premix in it, and before i started it i sprayed some fogger in the cylinders , and then tried to start, well it would start and then stall, i did this about 4-5 times, then i removed the screws/drain in the bottom of the carbs and oil poured out, so then i unhooked the premix tank and hooked it to straight gas a ran it and she ran great, i removed the onboard tank, and removed the couple gallons of fuel in it and put some fresh in and let it sit and rinsed it out. replced all the fuel lines,clamps, vent lines. and now i need to put the tank back in. im gonna change the lower unit oil next weekend, and start getting it ready. would it be a good idea to change it over to premix?? and unhook the oil injection for peace of mind??
