Outboard Engine Always Made My Vacation with Yamalube 2M Oil

LaborDayLakes_KidsWhen the family would take our usual trip to the lake house, our parents always had an idea of what it would be like: the whole family around a fire pit, sharing stories and hanging out. The reality was my sister and I screaming over who got the better room and bickering over what we wanted for breakfast (who says no to pancakes?).

Lucky for me, my sister’s idea of a vacation was working on her tan out on the dock. This meant I got to use our boat as much as I wanted. My father showed me how to properly add the Yamalube 2m oil and maintain the engine. I would take the boat out for hours every day, making sure to come back in time for the fire pit at night.

Fighting Outboard Motor Build Up with Bulk Mercury Optimax Oil

bulk mercury optimax oilWithin the first year of owning our outboard motor, it started to slow down a bit. It wasn’t anything major, and it was still functioning well, but I couldn’t help but feel like we were losing a lot more performance in the first year than was typical. When I told my husband my thought, he started to notice that small shift, too, and said it was too early on for this.
His best friend from his childhood is a mechanic, which has saved us a lot of repair money for our vehicles over the years. He looked at the engine and said we had a bit of a carbon build-up and should have been buying bulk mercury Optimax oil this whole time. Luckily we caught it early on and our engine has been running much better ever since.
