XPS oil (mixed with something else??)
I bought an EXTREMELY CLEAN 01 XP 951 last summer. I have always ran XPS oil in all my Seadoo's, anyway...
Only took it out once and then put it away for the winter last year...
I have taken it out a few times this year and now it was time to add oil.
I went and bought some more XPS oil had a gallon lying around (I like to have extra!!)
Starting adding oil about 3/4 Gal and noticed that the oil that was in there before had a BLUE tint to it. This leads me to believe that there was something else in there NOT XPS... anyway.. as soon as i noticed I quit adding the oil.
Do I need to Drain all my oil and then re-add the more XPS
(This stuff isn't cheap $59 Gal at my dealer!!)
If I leave it what can/will it to the the XP???

Drain and clean the tank out. Different brands can interact in odd ways. If they decide to clump up and clog the system...well, you get the idea.
FYI, you can mix XPS II and regular Seadoo two stroke oil. Other than that, never do it unless you absolutely have to.

I went ahead and hand pumped out all the oil in the resivoir... I left the oil in the lines because i dont have a manual and didn't want to hurt anything... I also added about 4 oz of oil to the gas tank to to make sure i am covered!! It might smoke a bit on this tank of gas but rather know i am protected....
I was wondering if the oil that i removed I could use in my Superjet??? I just hate to throw it out 3/4 of it was the XPS oil!!!
Is the Synthetic XPS oil also rated at TCW3???
Will running Synthetic hurt the Superjet???
thanks in advance!!

If it's two stroke oil, and you pre-mix it right before you use it, in your superjet, it should work just fine.
There are reports of some oils not mixing well. Seriously doubt you have a problem with it.
