It’s important to know as much as possible about your vehicle, whether it’s car, a boat, or anything else. The reason for this is because knowing a lot about vehicles allows you to know how to diagnose and treat any problems with it. Obviously, if you’re less experienced, it’s generally in your best interest to bring your vehicle in to a mechanic, but having some knowledge can help.
Even having the most basic information can help significantly. For instance, if you have a 2 stroke engine in your boat, you have to be certain that you’re using 2 stroke oil when you’re doing maintenance on your boat. Similarly, knowing the type of car you have can be important when it comes to choosing tires or anything else for your vehicle.
My friend was having some issues with his boat recently. I’m a car mechanic predominantly, but I’ve done a small amount of work with boats before, so when he told me about his issues, I told him I’d be willing to take a look at it for him. Whenever any of my friends need car or boat advice, I’m always willing to help them out free of charge.
I took a look at it, but I couldn’t really figure out what the problem was. I’m a lot more well-versed when it comes to cars than I am when it comes to boats, so it didn’t surprise me that much that I wasn’t able to figure it out. I told him that I didn’t know what was wrong with his boat, but a bottle of Mercury 2 stroke premium outboard motor oil certainly wasn’t going to hurt.
My father’s birthday is in June, so I’ve got to start thinking of a gift to get him. He has plenty of summertime hobbies that make it easy to figure out what to get him. He’s really into boating, fishing, hunting, and many other outdoor activities.
This year he’s been planning several boating trips with friends, so I decided to get him something for his boat. I did some searching and I decided that I would pick him up some Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil, because I know that he enjoys doing his boat’s maintenance on his own.
When I was a boy, I went on annual fishing trips with my dad; he taught me how to fish and it became something that I still do regularly. Though we gradually went on fewer fishing trips together as I got older, it was still something I looked forward to whenever we would plan a trip. Those were very meaningful times as I look back on those trips.
I want to make sure that my son has the same fond memories of our times together as I do of my father, so I now take him for a fishing trip every year. I fill up my boat with some Yamaha oil and we head out to a lake or a river where we fish together. I think my son enjoys it as much as I did when I was his age.
My twin brother and I always like to plan fishing trips together. It reminds us of the times when we were kids and our grandfather would take us out fishing. My brother and I live pretty close to one another, so we are able to get prepared together too. He has a large garage and workshop area, so I usually take my boat over there.
We work on the boat together and make sure that everything is in the best possible condition. We use Mercury 2 stroke oil to maintain my boat, which has a 2 stroke engine. We also clean the boat together and make sure that we both have all of the supplies that we are going to need before our fishing trip. It’s always good to be prepared.
Four-cycle engines have a closed crankcase, which is what makes them different from two-cycle engines. Crankcase compression two-stroke engines require a different type of oil than a four-cycle engine because of this reason. Since these types of engines use the crankcase as part of the induction tract, gasoline and oil must be mixed for proper lubrication.
Generally, the best way to do this is to use 2 stroke oil, which is offered by many of the top motor oil brands. This type of oil is burned alongside the fuel in what is technically a total-loss oiling system, though it is rarely referred to as such, because two-stroke engines differ greatly from other total-loss oiling systems that are used in steam engines.
Every year, my father and I go on an annual fishing trip. One caveat to the trip is that we have to decide on a fishing location somewhere that we have never been before. Usually, this means we’ll go to a different lake nearby or something like that, though we did splurge one year and visited South America for a pretty spectacular fishing trip.
This year, however, we’re keeping it low-key, though we did realize that traveling is a fun thing to do when it comes to fishing. What we’re doing this year is loading up with Yamaha 2M oil and taking the boat over to Oregon for some quality father-son bonding time. Every year has been really fun and it’s nice to be able to spend some time with my dad.
I’ve always been wary about anything that refers to itself as ‘premium’. I am often quite skeptical of how certain products are advertised, so I’m constantly doing research and reading Consumer Reports magazines and websites online. This helps me make better decisions on purchases.
That’s why I was so surprised when I was guided towards picking up some Mercury 2 stroke Premium Plus outboard motor oil for my boat. It turned out that when they said ‘premium’ in the title of the oil, they really meant it. My boat has been running fantastically ever since I started using it and I’m certain that I won’t be going back.
My neighbor is getting older and he sold me his boat recently, along with a few additional items to go along with the boat. He gave it to me at a heavily discounted price, because he feels he’s getting a little too old to keep up with maintaining a boat and taking it out on the water. I made sure to check if the oil he gave me was properly sealed.
With proper storage, Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil has a very long shelf life. It is important that the bottles of oil remain unopened. When the oil is opened, however, the additives in oil can cause it to turn acidic, which can cause problems. Ultimately, if it is properly sealed, oil can last years and years.
I’m the type of person who sticks to a brand once it has done me right. For instance, I’ve been using Apple phones for years with no likelihood of me ever buying something different and I’ve only eaten Eggo waffles for my entire life. Brand loyalty is something that I think is fairly important when it comes to choosing products.
That being said, my choice in boat oil has always come from Mercury products, for as long as I’ve had watercraft and boats. I’m particularly fond of the Mercury 2 stroke oil right now, as that’s currently what I’ve been using on my boat. So far, Mercury oil products have done nothing but good for me, so I have every intention in continuing to use them on my boats and watercraft.
