Synthetic vs. petroleum based 2 stroke oil?
Recently purchased a new (to me) boat and the previous owner has been running full synthetic in it. I am reluctant to change horses mid-stream, but is there any real advantage for using synthetic over petroleum based 2 stroke oil?

I had 200hp Mercury with auto oil removed here what I noticed going from semi synthetic to full synthetic way longer spark plug life the inside of around the prop went from dark gray to a lighter gray smoother idle. I was weekender part time fisherman. In my opinion if the previous owner cared enough to spend the money on full synthetic I would not change. I believe full synthetic does not carbon up as likely.
