2 Stoke Oil Consumption

Could anybody give me an idea of oil consumption for a Yam 200 HPDI. Best to average at 30-35knots.

Thanks in advance

All big 2 strokes use allot of oil. Could be interesting a 200 hpdi looking at your boat. the 115 you have is it the v4 2 stroke. If so I would guess that the 200 hpdi will use about 1.5 times what the v4 uses. What boat are you putting it on?

Suspect that that logic wont apply as HPDI is clever computer controlled engine and 115 isn't! I ran my 200 HPDI for around 45 hrs last year before doing my back in and can't honestly remember how much we used. It didn't seem excessive (in fact I can only recall topping up the reservoir once!). Certainly was as good if not better than 150 Merc Optimax.

I would defiantly agree with that. The HPDI uses less than the optimax. The Fitch is fairly good as well. Out of the three 2 require specialist oil and one it does not matter so much. Problem is I have forgotten which is which. Does anyone know. Does anyone here measure the amount of oil that they use or like me do they just pore more in far to often.

HPDI uses bog std TCW3 2 stroke oil, Ficht and Opti require specialised and more expensive oil.

I am putting the 200 HPDI on a 6.85m Tornado.

Just need to calculate my oil requirements for the first few runs I do and after that I will work it out based on my early experiences. Running in, won't push the engine hard and so providing I carry spare oil I don't really think oil will catch me out but its good practice to plan your trips to the full anyway.

My 115 V4 2 stroke Yam, never seemed to use that much oil and I would normally thrash the thing!

The new boat should be up and running within weeks, and as I heve never done more than a 60mile round trip in any rib, I can't wait to try some longer trips, hopefully with overnight beer stops etc.

Roll on Feb!

Does anybody have any comment on what type of oil to use for a Yam. I have been told by a few people to use QuickSilver, which I have been doing for the past 10years, but I think considering the cost I should open my mind to new options?

That will be a nice economical boat and will prob do 50 odd knots. Have fun I hate running boats in Just want to flat stick and go!

I have got a feeling that I put valvoline in a HPDI Cant remember though. it is the green one. Work by colour not name. Optimax is brown and Fitch is red. Useless I know sorry
