I seem to remember the first suzuki oil injected 2 strokes injected oil at 100:1 at idle and 10:1 WOT, don't know if mariners vary it like this though.

Dan, I think you'll find opening the Fosters when the boat's at rest will do much to alleviate the problem

Daniel, I find this very interesting; I have the same engine as you but it's an ex-RNLI. I've used it for about two hours since I'v had it now, and it's used no more than about 20 litres of pertol.
My oil tank has gone done a little, but not much. I was slightly worried there might be a problem.This has made me even more concerned now, as you using shed load of oil!

tim
the oil tank when full takes a long time to drop down the oil level gauge mine
did not move for the first eight hours or so but must have been useing the right amount of oil as i did not notice the oil had droped until sunday you may
have to take the cover off as the tank is higher than the level gauge and check the oil has dropped

Can't make this weekend chaps - doing Intermediate Power Boat course with MeMe and others at Jono Garton's school in North Wales.

I've tentatively suggested a Suffolk rivers cruise for the Bank Holiday Saturday (see Wayne Rogers' thread) which may be of interest. Also there's the Southend Air Show on the Sunday which we're planning to visit with RIBs.
