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).
Read my book, "An Outdoor State of Mind"
"The outdoors is not just a place, it's a state of mind."

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.
