Boating enthusiasts know that frequent summer outings to the lake can end up costing a hefty amount of money. Outboard motor oil and gas are two of the biggest expenses. One tip to save some money is to buy motor oil in bulk. Many brands, like Yamaha 2w oil, can be purchased by the case. Gas saving practices can also save money.Gas Saving Tips:
~Go through the storage compartments in your boat to eliminate extra baggage. Your boat motor burns more gas when your boat’s weighed down.
~Try only using your trolling motor when fishing. Eliminating the use of your primary motor conserves fuel.
~Keep the bottom of your boat clean. When your boat is stored for long periods of time algae grows in the hull. The drag created by the algae forces the engine to use more gas.
