    Oil mix

    Hello folks, I'm fairly new to the forum. Only been riding about 3 months. Started out with a yamaha GP 760 but yesterday I bought a 95 seadoo XP. I've enjoyed reading the forums here and feel that there is a very large knowledge base here. so to my question. On this XP the person I bought it from had the oil injection blocked off. He told me that he mixes the gas and oil at 40:1. Well looking at the black oily sludge coming out of the exhaust and the black streak on the ground from starting it on the trailer this seems a bit heavy on the oil. What is the concencise on here? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    40:1 should be fine. What oil was the previous owner using. Check the plug also and see how black they are and if you need new ones.

    Thanks for the replies folks.I'll continue to mix the way it has been. As far as the type of oil he was using I have no idea. I've been using pennsoil in my wave runner so that's what I'll mix up for this one. I figure only a few more days of riding here in carolina unless I get a wetsuit so the peesoil should do for now. I'll probably sell the XP since I got it in a package deal with a 2002 RX.
