does anyone have this model? If so do you recommend mixing the oil into the gas or do you have the oil injection line hooked up? Or is it all preference? Reason I ask is I bought a boat that had the oil line off the engine and the previous owner preferred mixing it with the gas. If you do have this model or similar what's the best mixing ratios?

I had desert quads with the same setup. The risk is if the oil line gets clogged you smoke the motor with straight gas.

I had a 1995 Johnson 130 and used the remote oil tank. Never had an issue but I've heard a few horror stories before. I'd say replace all lines, clean that tank and use it.

They were reliable, but like anything else they need some maintenance and could eventually fail. If it's been removed I'd just run it that way.
