Making the Synthetic Conversion on an Outboard: EFI vs DFI

2 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a 2004 Lund 1800 Explorer SS with a 150 HP Suzuki 2 stroke motor with EFI. A friend of mine gave me an unopened gallon of synthetic outboard oil that says its for use in DFI motors. Can I safely use this in the EFI motor?

Oilman-Once this oil is gone what Amsoil product would you recommend for this motor?

I don't know what brand of oil you have or all of its ratings, so I can't say for sure. EFI means 'Electronic Fuel Injection,' while DFI means 'Direct Fuel Injection.' I am not an engine design engineer (I am an Electrical Engineer by education, BSEE Va Tech), so I really am not sure about the differences or where the oil is injected, but EFI and DFI are both oil injected.

The AMSOIL for your engine would be the HP Injector, prod. code HPI which is recommended for all water-cooled marine 2-cycle engines, EFI, DFI, and can be used for pre-mix at 50-1. I didn't know that others made different oils for EFI and DFI. Perhaps a manufacturer's branded oil just says one or the other because that is the only style they make, and it still may work in both, but I don't know that for a fact.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
