    dont you have to use 2 cycle mix that is rated for WATER cooled engine. i have 2 differend amsoil oils for 2 stroke gear, one for trimmers, blowers, etc....and another for my 2 hp suzuki outboard.

    If your engine has a water pump in the foot that pumps water thru the engine I would not use the Tanaka mix. The Tanaka outboard motor line and smaller Sears Gamefisher line did not have a water pump in the foot therefor was considered a air cooled engine and the Tanaka mix is fine.

    From the Tanaka web site;
    Q. What gas / oil mix do I need to use for my outboard?
    A. 50:1 gas / oil. Be sure and use oil that is designed for air cooled motors (BTW - Tanaka oil works great!!) not water cooled motors. Owner's manual says 25:1. This is incorrect for today's gas and oil formulas?
