    with lake water,,, by seeing if it floats,,if it floats its primed, if it sinks "YOU SHOULD GO PREMIX" hahahahahahaha J/K sorta
    1 vote for premix-
    the pump runs off the crank shaft , so to prime you must spin the crank--but only after you put some oil down the carbs and the spark plug holes..

    There is a bleed screw on the pump, pull it to ensure there is going getting to the pump. You can also visually verify there is oil in the lines and no air bubbles. From there on, most people just run the ski with the lines removed to see if the pump is indeed pumping oil out all 3 lines. If it is, you should be good to go.

    If there is any question, run premix in your first tank. Id run a very light premix in anyways just in case...
