The motor's labelled up as 100:1.That means it WILL run right on 100:1, even if someone tells you to run it on 50:1.

THE PROBLEM IS NOT YOUR FUEL MIX.

If anyone tells you that your engine is cutting out in neutral because you're using the correct fuel mix they don't know what they're talking about.

checked mine tonight, 50/1 . BUT it is newer than the OP's so I guess the merc dealer was wrong about them being the same for the last few years if 2 years before they are 100/1.
