Any one tried or using any of the bio-degradeable oils formulated for 2 strokes? Claims I've seen are that these oils meet/exceed industry standards and will work with pre-mix or oil injected motors. Amsoil has a synthetic and they claim its approx 77% bio-degradeable. I've used Amsoil synthetic in my Land Rover for 7 years and its great.

Even Wallmart now sells a store labeled synthetic 2-stoke oil.I have stayed with a name brand regular 2-stoke oil because most boating is in the ocean and feel the little unburned fuel and oil does not present a polution problem in the ocean.If i were on a small fresh water pond i would then use the high price synthetic with its addvantiges of bio-degradeable and being cleaner burning with less internal deposits in your powerhead.

I don't know which specific oils are on your mind. Cabela's comes to mind but I have no experience, 1st or 2nd hand, with it. However I've frequently posted on my 25 or so years with Amsoil 2 stroke, both 100:1 and injector. It's great. And no, I don't sell it. In particular I've used the 100:1 mix in anything and everything 2 stroke with outstanding results.

Harpoon, synthetic, Harry

Tuna 1,
Most of my boating is on fresh water lakes and ponds. Some fairly small.

I did a web search and Shell, Amsoil, etc. came up. But I was looking at Amsoil as a possible for an oil injected Yamaha 90hp 2 stroke. Glad to hear your experience with it has been good.

Bombardier/Evinrude also markets a synthetic for use in their direct injected engines. You can get more info on this oil at
