went fishing with a buddy over the weekend, we pulled into the gas station and he offers to fill up the boat while I go inside, what I didnt know was he mixed oil with my gas,(motor auto mixes) we get half way accross the lake and the motor starts to run like [censored], what do I need todo? besides not let him fill it up again

what motor do you have? it shouldnt hurt it. usually people double oil their motors after a rebuild. as long as it was the right oil for the motor and not valvoline 5 30 you should be arite. it may have got your carbs dirty tho if its a carbed motor

I wouldnt think it would have hurt anything, probably just smoke more. It will be alot better than if you ran premix in it and he didnt put oil in it.

For next time NEVER LET ANYONE FILL UP YOUR BOAT.

Invest in some fresh gas, added to the tank and a set of spark plugs. You'll be OK.

Lesson learned, I presume?


Now, Donald...please pick John Bolton for your running mate.
