Fogging oil

Hi guys,
Can anyone help, not sure how to winterise my mariner 40efi , I've bought the fogging oil but not sure where to squirt it ?
Still quite new to all this so any help would be most welcome.

Take plugs out and squirt your oil in the cylinder then replace plugs. Do not put new plugs in put your old ones in till your ready to go for season then change

Not sure about your specific engine. On mine (older mariner 60) you also spray directly into carbs as well while engine is running, one at a time until it stalls. There are some good videos online which show what to do. Even better, get the manual online. I found mine for free just with a google search.

Even on an injection engine you will still have some form of throttle bodies in the induction tract I'd imagine you could fog through there once you remove the air filter
Just spraying into the plug holes will probably only lube the upper cylinder & not the crank & bearings

As you have a 4/str,this is what I used to do before I retired.
1/ put a stabalizer in the petrol and run it so that it is all through the fuel system.
2/ when you are happy that the stabalizer is all throgh the system/
3/ remove the spark plugs, with each piston at B.D.C. sqirt a small amount of new clean engine oil into the top of the cylinder ,so that it runs down the side, do that to each cylinder, making sure that the kill switch is in the kill/not able to start position.
4/ with the sparkplugs re-fitted turn the engine over BY HAND ONLY, to make sure that it doesnt hydraulic lock.
5/ change the engine oil and filter
good luck.
6/ sell the fogging oil to someone with a 2/str
