When it comes to taking good care of my boat, I guess that I can be a little bit fussy. I take great care whenever I wash the boat to make sure that I look for any scratches or problem spots on the boat that might indicate that something is wrong. When I run the outboard motor, I listen for any flaws in the normal operating noise that it produces to detect engine problems early.
I always take good care of my outboard motor by making sure the correct ratio of Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil is mixed in with the gasoline that I use to run it. I am very careful about measuring out just the right amount to make sure the mixture is perfect for my motor. I also include a fuel additive to clean out any build up that might be in the motor.
