  • '86 Johnson 90, newbee question, what is 2-stroke oil ratio? (VRO removed)

    Hi everyone! My wife recently purchased an old '95 Bayliner 17' with an older Johnson 90. It's had the VRO system removed and the previous owner sold us a full tank of premixed gas. He said, "just ask autozone what oil and ratio to use". I tend not to rely on any good advice from the modern-day autopart stores, no offense to anyone that might or might work for them. I would much rather ask real boat enthusiasts! Could anyone recommend a good brand of oil-mix and ratio for this application?

    Thank you in advance, I'm a good wrencher/gear-head but totally Green with most all things marine! (I did work on a few good knots w/ my wife last night so I'm getting there!)

    50:1 or 2% depends on where in the world you live.

    a quality TC-W 3 two stroke oil is fine.

    Various Evinrude powered Pontoons all named "Floosy" I've realized that 1/2 the population is above average intelligence, wish I was in it.

      Thanks, Captain Jakedaawg! We are in the midwest, fresh water lakes.
