I have a 96' Johnson 48 HP. I got an OMC shop manual for it, now I'm really confused. Does this engine have a VRO system? There is no internal or external oil reservoir visible, so I'm assuming it doesn't. The manual calls for a 50:1 oil mix for non-VRO engines, 25:1 for other engines. Is the proper oil mix likely to be listed ont the engine somewhere?

No, your 48 hp does not have VRO. That is chiefly what distinguishes it from a 50 hp. It runs at 50:1.
