    Read this.

    Oil choices have been discussed many, many times.

    Search is your friend. Look for synthetic

    Yes, but the only synthetic that does not like to mix with other oils is the Klotz BeNOL.

    I just used a suction gun and sucked the oil out and refilled it with Amsoil Intersepter. Runs great with less smoke.

    Amsoil HP Injector is an excellent oil. If you're ever in a pinch though, the Evinrude XD50 (blend) or X100 (100% synth) are excellent oils as well. You can usually find a 'Rude dealer somewhere nearby that will have it.

    I just picked up 100% synthetic pennzoil marine at Menards (seriously) for $24 a gallon. I thought it was a pretty good deal.
