    HDEO Rating and use in gas engine

    I Ran a Mercury EFI 60 4 stroke outboard on Delo Sde 15w-40 for around 50 Hours (several continuous runs at full throttle) and no problems so far other than some fuel dilution as expected on most outboards Noted from analysis. I would change oil after 50 hours and leave filter for 100 Hours.

    Mercury 60hp 4 stroke outboard oil analysis.

    Please note that I did not indicate the grade/weight of oil on the report; It appears that Blackstone used an estimated flash point base to formulate fuel dilution number.

    Mercury 60hp 4 stroke outboard oil analysis.

    I’ll try a Napa/ Wix test next time.. Had some Blackstone kits on hand that made it convenient to collect this sample. I do prefer the Format & Averages shown on Blackstone Report over other reports.

    Mercury 60hp 4 stroke outboard oil analysis.

    Most outboards suffer from fuel dilution especially during the first 200 hrs. I’ve seen new Yamaha‘s have oil climbing above dipstick full mark due to crankcase fuel. Excess idling and/ or slow break-in seem to be the likely cause. Additionally, these motors run cooler (around 140*F) making it...

    Yamaha 5GH-13440-61

    This was on a Newish Yamaha F60 Outboard with 35 hrs on both engine and filter. Filter was incredibly over torqued to mount and was damaged during removal. Same filter installed with reasonable torque and filled 2 quarts of yamalube 5w-30.

    Ethanol free fuel for multiple engines?

    Yes. All spark ignited internal combustion equipment (Gasoline engines) as you described, will run fine on Ethanol free gasoline. I encourage the use of E0 fuels and/or certain fuel treatments as I have personally seen many Carbs, Fuel hoses and tanks that have suffered a combination of...

    Aircraft Tempest 48108-2

    Tempest was slightly less expensive and has the internal magnet. Although I read somewhere that the magnet may not be included in the future; apparently there is a shortage of magnets.

    Anyone using their CarQuest oil stash?

    CQ 15w-40 in the 6.7 Cummins now. It was like $10 for a 2.5G jug. Seems to run great.
