synthetic 2 cycle oil

3 posts in this topic

Iam planning on switching to amsoil synthetic 2 cycleoil in my 1996 50HP Evinrude tiller outboard w/ oil injection. My oil resevoir is probably less than 1/4 full. Can i just fill it up with the synthetic or should I somehow drain the remaining standard oil? thanks

I swtched to Penzoil Synthetic about 6 years ago. Waited til the low oil alarm sounded, then filled it with syn. oil. Never had any problems.

I know Amsoil isn't TCW3 rated, but their lable claims they meet all TCW3 standards, one of them is it has to be able to mix with all other TCW3 oils.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
