new fogging technique?

8 posts in this topic

I'll try a new post to see if I get any responses. Has anyone ever heard of fogging an outboard motor by running gas mixed with the fogging agent through the motor for 10 to 15 minutes? What type of fogging agent is used to do this? Does this do as good of a job as the traditional way of fogging the motor? Thanks.

Never Enough.....

I am thinking it wouldn't leave enough residue on cylinder walls to protect them.

All I have ever seen or heard of come as an aerosol that you spray in the intake with the engine running. Then finish by pulling the spark plug and spraying in the plug hole. All I have seen have instructions on the can, just follow them.

I'm betting what you were hearing about was running a fuel stabilizer in there to help the fuel from breaking down. This is good to do, but its not the same as fogging the motor.

I run Seafoam in the last tank for the year and that's a good fuel preservative/engine cleaner but it doesn't fog the cylinders. It does remove moisture from the motor though so I could see where some guys might think that's good enough...???

I never fog lawn mower or snow blower or weed whacker or chainsaw. But I do fog outboards. Interesting question.

I have never had any problem with yard stuff that I could attribute to not fogging.

Actually, I have heard of some places doing this - but what they do once they're sure they've gotten the mixture run through is to choke the engine out, which more or less gets it on the internals of the engine.

It used to be more common place on efi engines.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
