I use Mercury Synthetic outboard oil in my Yamaha outboards and have chosen to use the same oil in my cart.

The OB oil is very good oil, though some still say you need an air cooled oil for air cooled 2 strokes. I run the cheap tech walmart oil in everything (like lawn equipment) except OBs or other high performance 2 strokes. The gallon size burns clean and works well, the tiny bottle seems to be different stuff. For OB I run the pennz synthetic or blend, mercury, or bomb (omc) oil. If you have the injection I would run OB oil or pennz, or other quality rated and injection rated oil. Some of the weedeater/chainsaw stuff is thicker and not for injection. The injection takes very little oil so don't worry about spending a little on it. Yamalube is very good oil too.

If I was mixing a G1 I would use the walmart tech gallon, or pennz, both likely cheaper and good oil. I have used the walmart stuff in a low power OB but not 100hp+. IIRC it is OB rated.

I've been using Echo brand oil from Home D**ot. I've used it for years on all my trimmers, blowers, chainsaws, etc. It's synthetic and has an alcohol treatment in it. Good stuff.

im not trying to steal this so sry. Im getting ready to change from yamalube to Pennzoil 2 stroke. Is there different blends of oil from pennzoil like there is from yamalube? If so what mix is the best for my g1. I been mixing my yamalube at 2oz to a gallon is that a good mix for the pennzoil? I know thats a lil rich but im in country and dont mind a lil extra smoke. Just trying to keep it from blowing up.

Are you Pre-Mixing,or running the Oil-Injection?Some oils are Injection-Only,some Pre-Mix Only,some will work for both.Make sure you read the label.Hope this helps.

I agree, Echo is a quality company many people don't know about. For me HD store is longer drive so I don't hit it very often.
