Is burning 15 to 20 gallons of oil a year excessive for a 2014 Mercury 125 OptiMax? 325 hours currently on the motor.

how many gallons of gas did you burn in the same time frame? Guess it would all depend on how hard and how long you run it.

My 2 stroke Mercury runs off very little oil I guess, I've made about 30 trips and only had to fill the oil once

It seems that I have been burning a gallon of oil for every 27 gallons + or - of gas. It is still under warranty and is currently in a shop.

I was told that the plugs were fouled, the motor needed to be decarbed and that the belt was showing wear! I reminded them the reason of why I brought it in. We will see what happens next.

I have a 2006 115 merc... Uses no gas or oil it seems like. Coming from a 1996 225hp Johnson I feel like I'm saving tons of cash!
