Two Cycle Oil Keeps Boats in Top Condition

Domo-Online 1-5-2015 Pic 3I want to make sure that my boat is always running in top condition. If you’re not taking care of your boat, you’re essentially throwing money down the drain by purchasing one. It’s not difficult to ensure that you’re performing all of the necessary maintenance; all you need to do is have the right materials with you.

That’s why most boat owners that I know keep a decent stock of two cycle oil. With that oil, they can perform maintenance on their boat whenever necessary, to ensure that it continues running properly for a long time. After all, I imagine that’s what most of us want out of our boats.

Asking Dad About Two Cycle Outboard Oil

Domo-Online 12-22-2014 Pic 3Whenever I’m looking for advice regarding boating, I go to my dad. My dad has been boating for decades and he knows everything there is to know about boats.

What My Dad Taught Me About 2 Cycle Oil

domo-online blog 1 11-17-14Having been born a girl hasn’t always been easy. This is especially true because my interests lie in more masculine dominated areas, such as fast boats and hunting expeditions. At first, my father pushed aside my interest as a fleeting curiosity. He was much more involved in trying to teach my brother who had no interest at all in boats, or the outdoors for that matter. But that finally changed when my brother went to college and I got time alone with my dad.

My father decided I was serious and began teaching me everything he knew about boats. Because my education in this area was pretty beginner-level, he had to start at the most simplest instructions, such as what 2 cycle oil was and what it was used for. He informed me that this oil is intended for use in crankcase compression two-stroke engines. My next lesson is to understand what a two-stroke engine is!

Mercury Two Cycle Oil is Best for My Boat

domo online blog 4 11-03-14When I made the switch to a Mercury engine for my boat, I knew that I also needed to switch the type of oil that I was using. My new engine required an oil that could be used in direct injection applications rather than one that required the oil to be mixed directly into the gasoline in order to be used properly.

Since I knew that I was using a Mercury outboard motor, I determined that it would be a very good idea to choose direct injection oil that was made by Mercury. I ended up picking out a Mercury two cycle oil the exceeded all of the recommendations for use with my engine. I was very happy with the way that the oil worked when I put it into my engine.

Two Cycle Oil is Necessary to Properly Lubricate a Two Stroke Engine

domo online blog 4 7-07-14When it comes to engines, many of us are more accustomed to the engine of a car in which different fluids are all separated out and many systems run at the same time to keep an engine going smoothly. When it comes to operating smaller vehicles such as snowmobiles and small boats, a smaller and less complex engine is needed. This is where two stroke motors come into play.

Typically, the two cycle oil that is used in this engine is either mixed directly with the gasoline or put into a section of the engine which puts it into the gasoline in small amounts. There is not a separate lubrication system in these smaller engines, but it is still very important that oil is used. Without two stroke oil an outboard motor  can’t operate properly.
