I used this on 2 boats both being 2 strokes. 1 is a bass boat with a 150 merc. Other is a offshore boat with twin 175 mercs. In both cases I started with 80:1 mix being new to Ams-oil. After intensive research I went for the 100:1 mix. Both boats smoke much less. They dont load up like before idling and trolling. Did a compression check on all 3 motors and all stayed the same. I will continue using this.
I used this oil for several years... ran out and bought some Mercury synthetic oil. My engine blew up a month later. So I'm back to the Amsoil and I have to say I think it's the best product on the market. If you have a V-6 that you run at high rpm and you want peace of mind, then I would buy this oil and nothing else. No smoke, excellent low idle, high speed confidence.
