    Probably a dumb question... but...

    Can I syphon the oil out of my ski?

    I had mine serviced recently and the mechanic saw that i must have been low on oil, so he topped it up with yamalube. However ive been using Amsoil Intercepter and the oils have obviously mixed now.

    So im just worried about possibly creating air bubbles by syphoning out the mixed oil...

    Can't syphon oil. I would just run what's there it won't hurt nothing or if you want to get the oil out you will need a pump. Harbor freight has them cheap.

    From the Amzoil website:
    "Use as injection oil or 50:1 premix (2.6 oz. per U.S. gallon of gas). INTERCEPTOR is compatible with most conventional and synthetic two-stroke oils; however, for best performance, mixing oils should be minimized."

    So I would not worry about it, just run it. They do say compatible.

    depending on which ski, you can pop the line of the bottom of the oil tank and just let it self drain into a container.

    i think mixing oil is ok, it is not going to damage the engine. it said for "best performance" not that it will burn the engine. I will use it up and then fill it up with Amzoil again.

    I would be inclined to remove it, you could get 90% of it out with one of these. $6 at harborfreight when on sale.

    multi use transfer pump, but my experience with this is that it works well, but only once, then the dam cheap thing stops working.




    I have mixed amsoil/yamalube but only in premix situations, and i just waited till the gas tank was reasonably low before making the change.

    Most people worry about mixing oils WAY too much. Just run it and don't lose any sleep over it. IF, and I mean chances are almost non-existent, something happens then I would assume it's listed on the paperwork and you can make them fix it.
