Minimize Carbon Deposits with Mercury 2 Cycle Oil
Carbon deposits are one of the biggest problems for outboard motors. They can cause damage to the engine and cause ring stick or problems with the pistons moving. This makes your engine less efficient in the short term and puts it in danger of breakdown in the long term. Fortunately, carbon can be cleaned out once it is there.
You can use additives to the fuel to dissolve the carbon deposits inside of the engine. Once your engine is clean, you may want to switch to a different type of oil. Some oils leave less carbon deposits than others. For example, Mercury 2 cycle oil is specially formulated to minimize carbon deposits, while providing the lubrication that your motor needs.
