I got a oil injected 30hp Merc that the alarm doesn't work on. I don't want to repair the alarm, I don't trust the injection period. I assume it would be pretty easy to bypass and just mix my fuel? Anyone have any experience on this or a link to go to?

Yes, that is what I "want" to do but I need to know "how" to do... Thanks for the reply though! \:\)

This was probably true on the early models but outboard companies would be broke replacing $15K outboards under warranty. Like everything else, the technology has improved exponentially. I'm not going back to 8 tracks and I'm not going to start mixing my oil again.

I never saw a oiler go out under warranty, but I have saw MANY go out 5-15 years down the road. Many of the larger motors have alarms that I trust, but I would not trust a 30hp. Play it safe and keep asking how to bypass it and mix your own. I would do a google search. If you put it in, you KNOW it's in. I have a 15hp that I mix my own in. Get a gas can and lable it for you boat and use it only for your boat and put the oil in when you put the gas in the can.

Just bought a new 15 hp 4 stroke. Happy to not have the oil mixing to worry with.

If your alarm isn't working, couldn't you just drain the oil resevoir and start mixing?

I would think so but I want to be sure.

Put this question up over on Bass Boat Central. There are some real outboard "geeks" over there. Geeks being a good thing.

Yea, what Winchester said... 4-stroke baby (preferably a Yamaha).

Although I understand it can be cost prohibitive, but when the time comes for a new outboard, go 4-stroke. If you run a lot, the savings in gas and oil will make up the extra cost (not to mention quiet-running and convenience).

It has a gear pump that puts the oil in... if you don't unhook that then you're gonna screw something up. It can be done... but do it the right way if you're going to instead of just not adding oil to the oil tank.

You need to unhook the oil pump. (2 wires) Then just mix your oil/gas directly in the tank. I've done it 1000 times. No issues.
