95 polaris 750SL - How much oil use is normal for 1 tank of gas
Im trying to find out if I fill my oil resevoir and fill my gas tank what is the normal amount of oil used for every tank of gas. Another words if I fill my oil how many tanks of gas will I go thru before I have to refill my oil in general... I know I should always check my oil every time I fill my gas tank... I pulled one of my oil lines today from the carb and checked to be sure it drips at idle and it does but I nearly used 3/4 of a tank of gas today and barly touched the oil.....

about 3or 4 tanks of gas approx. it will vary depending on how you ride.. the variable oil injection system will go 40/1 at wot, 50/1 at mid throttle and idling is 100/1.. so if your hauling azz a lot, 3 tanks and it will be gone. check it every time you go and keep it full. I think the the constant system uses 50/1 all the time regardless what throttle position.
if you go premix instead. it will go a lot faster.. 3.2oz per gallon gas is 40/1.. 10 gallons will require 1 quart oil.

I have a '94 750 SLT with the constant oil injection system. It took 2 tanks before I saw the oil level drop on the gauge... since the gauge displays 1/4 tank increments. On the 3rd tank of gas, the oil got down to 1/4 and MFD red light comes on showing "OIL". So I topped off the oil tank.
But yeah... when I first got my ski running... I too was worried if the oil injection was working properly. Took forever for the oil level to drop noticeably. But I guess that's a good thing. Polaris semi-syn 2-stroke oil is like $19 gallon!
