  • 1985 Evinrude 6hp Fuel Mix 100 to 1 ??

    I let my son borrow this motor as a kicker on his Starcraft, and when he returned it to me I noticed for the first time, that there is a sticker next to the gas inlet that says 100 to1 fuel mix.

    I have owned the motor for years, and never noticed that little sticker.

    Bottom line: I run the usual 50 to 1 through it, with no apparent problems... should I switch to 100 to 1??

    Other question, are there other OMC outboards that have this sticker??
