When I first got an outboard motor, I wasn’t really that good about taking care of it the proper way. I feel bad about this now because after all it is my responsibility to make sure that my motor continues working well. I now know what I should have been doing all of those years so I try to make sure that I am able to get all of these things done easily.
When I first got the motor, I would just use the cheapest motor oil that I could find so that I would be able to take care of this part of my boat. What I didn’t realize was that this motor oil was making it so that my motor could potentially have residue building up inside of it. I knew that I had to stop this from happening so that I could care for my boat better.
When I did find out that this was how I should care for my boat, I started to use better quality oil to make sure that my boat would be alright. I now use Yamaha oil and sometimes even use a fuel additive to help keep dangerous gunk from building up in my motor on a regular basis. I feel better knowing that I am doing something to keep my boat running well.
