When I got my boat it had a tank of premix and the guy I bought it from said that somewhere in the book it says that if you have broken into the oil system you should run a full tank of premix fuel through it and make sure the level in the oil tank is dropping before switching to pure petrol. I did, and it was a bit smoky but ran fine - carb 2 stroke.

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
