    Amsoil Interceptor is what I run. You can get a oil pump kit at a local parts store to suck the old oil out of the tank.

    I would use klotz if you keep the oil injection
    Amsoil Interceptor if you premix.
    Just My 2cents

    I think there is a viscousity difference IE: amsoil goes through the fuel injection easily, where klotz does not.

    I'm thinkin you have this BACKWARDS. The interceptor is good with the injection and use Klotz if you premix. Anyways, Amsoil will mix with the yamalube just fine. Just run it low or pump as much out as you can and then fill the oil tank with the Amsoil.

    A bunch of guys here use the AMSOIL Interceptor oil. You can get it direct here through Jerry's site. Just click on the link on the left hand side. http://www.amsoil.com/redirect.cgi?z...968&page=index
