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.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
