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

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
