    Well I am now half owner of a boat. I just need to know what gas-oil ratio to mix for the motor now lol. It has a Chrysler 45 horse outboard on it. I have been told most people run 50:1, but i am not sure on that yet. I have to do some rewiring on it for lights (trailer and boat),the trolling motor needed wired diffrent, and then maybe we can get it out on the water and play with it some to make sure it all works proplery. If anyone knows that gas oil ratio would be great for me so we dont blow up the motor on it right off th bat LOL.

    I was the owner of an old Ebco boat with a Chrysler 80 hp outboard. I'm pretty sure we ran a 50:1 premix in the outboard. Not 100% sure. Hopefully someone on this forum can be of more help. Thanks for the post!:big_smile:

    I agree... Don works on boats for a living ( I believe!) and can probably give you some good help if you cannot get it answered sooner.

    Congrats on the boat btw!

    I owned a chrysler motor a few years back and we mixed it 50:1. Never had a problem.

    I own a Chrysler 70hp and the ratio is 50 to 1 think the motor is a 70's model. Hope this helps

    50:1 is pretty much standard across the board, but check with a professional just to make sure.
