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.
