What’s the big deal?

Synthetic OilA lot of people don’t know exactly what sets synthetic oil apart from its counterpart. Motor oil that’s derived from the proces of turning oil into petroleum is what has traditionally been called motor oil. Synthetic oil is oil created from chemical compounds. Historically, traditional mineral oils such asd those derived from processing crude oil are not as efficient or beneficial to the use of high performance engines.

Synthetic oil offers a full host of advantages versus mineral oils and can often last much longer. As a more economical, more earth friendly product, synthetic motor oil is unmatched in terms of convenience and ease-of-use. Most people don’t need to know exactly how a 2 cycle outboard motor oil works. All they need to know is that the motor itself works. But with synthetic oils you can improved the overall performance of your outboard motor, not to mention increase oil efficiency.

The Outboard Motor

Fifties Evinrude AdThe history of the outboard motor is as simple as its operation. A testament to ingenuity, the outboard motor was invented in 1907 by Ole Evinrude. A pattern maker by trade, Ole Evinrude finished his first outboard motor in 1907 And even to this day, outboard motors are basically the same: using Ole’s idea of a vertical crankshaft, horizontal flywheels, and set of bevel gears. Today Evinrude motors, with the help of some good outboard motor oil, will propel a boat a bit faster than the ’07 version (150 mph versus 5 mph).

Since its invention the outboard motor has come quite a ways in terms of technology, efficiency and performance. Throughout the years other engineers have expanded on Evinrude’s ideas and made the outboard motor one of the most remarkable inventions of the century. Ole Evinrude is a great example of the entrepeneurial spirit and the innovation that mark much of boating culture.

How long before your 55 gallon drum of oil goes bad?

I use Evinrude XD50 in my 200 hp Evinrude E-Tec engine and am thinking about buying a 55 gallon bulk oil drum. I can save about $10 a gallon compared to the counter price at the store, but I wonder how fast I must use it before it goods bad…or does it ever go bad?

My two fishing buddies and I are sharing the drum and should finish it off in about a year.

Does anybody know the answers? Thanks, Bill

Toyota Nixes Outboard Motors on Pickups

ToybotaCiting size, fuel efficiency challenges and California emissions standards Toyota has decided not to move forward with putting outboard motors on their newest line of pickups. This came as quite a disappointment to many industry specialists who were looking forward to helping owners of the new vehicles stay on the road. From outboard motor oil requirements to gasoline, even repair and maintenance needs, the new vehicle was destined to provide jobs in mechanical repair and gas stations the world over.

Industry professionals are not thrilled but they are also unsurprised. “Why would you put an outboard motor on a pickup truck?” seems to be the question on most people’s lips. And a good question it is. There’s no real apparent advantage in terms of performance, towing capacity or versatility to be gained from attaching an outboard motor to the tailgate of a remarkably durable truck. Still, though, many are shaking their heads in amazement, “It sure does look cool.”

Recycle Oil

Recycle Motor OilWhen it’s time to replace your 2 cycle motor oil make sure you dispose of your used oil properly. Despite attempts to clean up landfills and other dumping areas motor oil continues to be a persistent problem and threat to the environment around the world. When we don’t follow proper disposal techniques we endanger wildlife and can even directly impact the helth and growth of fish in large numbers.

Simply put, if you don’t recycle your oil a lot of bad things can happen and you’ll end up with no fish, or no clean water for boating. The snowball effect from improper disposal of your oil can be catastrophic to wetlands and endangered species no matter where you live. That’s why I support and practice motor oil recycling religiously. I want my children, grandchildren and their children to be able to enjoy the same relationship with nature and wildlife that I do.

You’d think with an entire planet covered with water it might be a little more important to folks to stay on top of goings-on in the marine and maritime industries. Anyway, before I get off on a tangent let me point out a great site I’ve found that can help remedy your need for nautical news. You can find it at topix.com/business/boating. This site’s got everything.
