My cousin has had an outboard motor that has always run a little bit oddly. The motor doesn’t really work too well and has always had problems starting up. My cousin finally took it in to be fixed a couple of weeks ago. The person who worked on the motor suggested that now that it was fixed and running alright again, he should try to take better care of it.
My cousin decided that the best way to make sure that his outboard motor was well taken care of was to use high quality 2 cycle Mercury oil in the motor instead of using the cheaper oil that he had been using. He even found some places where he could buy it in bulk so that he could get the oil that he really needed at a cost that was actually a lot more affordable.
