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?
