    1994 750 ss xi excessive oil consumption

    In 1 tank of fuel (9 gal) used about 1/2 to 3/4 qt of oil and it smokes quite a bit when out of the water. I have the stock oil injection.
    Ideas?

    Other than that (and being cold blooded) it is a solid machine and runs really strong.

    That's just about right. 9 gallons = 36 quarts. At 50:1, that would be .72 quarts.

    That's what 2-strokes do.

    Use better oil.

    Switch to a synthetic. It won't stop it from smoking, but will probably reduce it.
