        Post the serial number. Older models had a two part serial number, the first part being the relevant model number The numbers should be on a plate on the transom bracket

        Do you know the age.

        Generally anything from 1964 onwards will run on 50:1. I think all 6 hp models are after that year. ( except for a couple from the 1920s)

            6203 is the model number. It makes it a 1972 model

            50:1 fuel mix then using a TCW3 2 stroke outboard engine oil

            That's near enough 1 pint in 6 gallons

            more precisely

            2.56 fluid ounces per US Gallon

            3.2 fluid ounces per UK (Imperial ) Gallon

            20mls per litre anywhere in the world except the USA

            2% if you are a mathematician
