    Welcome to the Hulk.

    I persoanlly prefer premix, but you can use the oil injection if it's easier for you. Just do yourself a favor and replace the old hoses and filters.

    If you choose premix, you need to remove the oil pump and install a block off plate. Then cap off the oil hose fittings on the carbs.

    Also need to address the low oil warning buzzer. Easiest to tie up the oil float to read full.

    You'd use a 40:1 for normal use and 32:1 for breaking in an engine.

    Go to this thread as their is already a discussion about it.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy a ski with block off plate on it. My reasoning is that something went wrong with it and that is covering up the problem. You will hardly ever see or hear of a oil injection sytem failing. Mostly people forget to fill their reservoirs or something? I have been told this by several techs also. Also I don't like the oil burning smell either as it is much stronger on pre-mix. i could go on and on, but look at the other link first and make up your own mind! P.S. I believe Polaris also built in a fail safe for the oil injection also.

    Welcome

    The oil injection system on the Polaris engines is quite reliable. Make sure the oil hoses are changed to new, and the oil filter, and that the clamps are properly in place.

    Bleed any air bubbles out, and add some pre-mix oil to the fuel tank until you are sure all the air is out of the system. Then don't worry about it.

    Do pay attention to all the other things that may need attention on your 14 year old machine
