Boat Motor Injector Oil - Switching to Synthetic

5 posts in this topic

Should I be purging the system of the old dino-oil before adding the new stuff? Can I dump the new stuff in with the old? I'm really low on the old stuff anyway.

Thoughts?

Run the dino oil as low as you can and then add the synthetic. I've done it that way with a 75 and a 90 hp Mariner with no problems. Any oil that meets TCW3 standards will mix with any other TCW3 oil.

Absolutely, just add the synthetic with the tank low. Most are extremely difficult to purge, or at best very sloppy to attempt, don't even try. Normal recommendation to change is to run until the warning light/buzzer goes off, then just fill with the synthetic.

The synthetic oil is compatible to mix with the other oil, so you can do whatever you like. No worries. grin.gif

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
