1988 9.9 Evinrude Fuel Mixture

8 posts in this topic

I just bought a new to me 1988 9.9 Evinrude 2 stroke. I'm assuming it's a 50:1 mix for the gas and oil. Am I assuming correctly?

A lot of the small 1988 motors from evenrude were sold with an automixing tank and were labeled at 100-1. After tons of service claims Evinrude come out with a bulletin to run 50-1. I used to an '88 15 horse. I ran 50-1, no problems.

I have a 1985 25 hp Johnson that says 100:1. I ran it that way for many years before hearing that I shouldn't and switched to 50:1. I never had any problems. I heard the cylinders were rusting if it went long periods between uses. I used mine 2-4 times per week and winterized it religiously.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
