Ive been reading much lately of the benefits of using Amsoil synthetic oil in outboards. The deal is carbon buildup is supposed to be GREATLY reduced also emmissions. Plugs last longer, engine do also.
The prices dont seem any more then Yamalube.
BUT this stuff isnt TCW3 certified, but K Mart special 2 stroke is.
Anyone using this oil or any comments?

Thanks for the comments, I wasnt sold thats why I asked. In my truck I mix 50/50 mobil one with petrolium, same in my rear & tranny. The 2 stroke stuff , I'm not sold on an using all all synthetic, Yamalube says theres synthetic ingred. in there. I think you might be right about the hype with this oil in 2 stroke engines .

Thanks Paulie,
I was talking to a friend when I was out on the Whaler earlier today on Woodcleft & he told me that some Amsoil oil is TCW 3 certified, I think the 2 stroke injector oil, I'm going to check it.
I'm from the school that straight synthetic isnt a good thing. The seals need petrolium based oils on them so they dont leak, thats why I mix it in my truck. If Amisol is TCW 3 cert.
I think a nice brew would be 1 part Amsoil, 1 part Yamalube 2 or 3 parts Penzoil.
My line of thinking here is it'll be a better oil mixture & a little cheaper.
But I'll most likely stick to the yamalube straight, for a couple yrs. @ least..

SeaOx2,
I really appreciatethat info.
I also heard its NOT TCW3 cert. from someonelse after posting my last post. Also the reason why it's not { one of the reasons } it doesnt mix with other oils so I couldnt do a mixture as suggested in my other post. I'll stick with yamalube.

WoW Penzoil has synthetic {it's part synthtic I just learned, but they do have 100% synthetic gear lube}} thats TCW# cert.
To recap, can be mixed with Yamalube and you can buy it @ Walmart.
thanks, alan
Interesting legal statement @ the Penzoil site {marine section} how unless Outboard makers supply TCW# oil with the engine they cannot exempt the warranty if other TCW3 oil is used.
