Sorry missed the last few days as I was diving in the Summer Isles. My Tohatsu runs on 50-1 mix as per handbook. I agree with running it rich as well.

I run my little Volvo 4hp also on 1:50 and would do so with any other aux as well- since an auxilary is a rather small engine compared to the boat size, it`s likely that it`s operated almost any time at full throttle to just give your RIB a minimum of speed and manouverability! Even all the variable-ratio selfmixing engines of today go down to that ratio when they have to run WOT, so the little aux will easily be capable of burning the oil, no probs at all! If you plan to use a slightly bigger motor also as a kicker for trolling at medium speeds we have another situation...
