GAS/OIL Mix 96 Doo

Recommended Posts

Newbie here, just acquired 1996 ski-doo and it requires an oil gas mix.  What do I do if we are sledding all day and need gas and don’t have the gas/oil mix just regular 87 at the pump?  Do list just carry a gas/oil mix tank? Thanks

The best way to do it is to carry a quart of two-stroke oil with you and if you know you're going to be putting in say five gallons of gas add the oil that corresponds with the amount of gas you're putting in

The 1996 Ski Doo Elan 250 didn't have oil injection. 1996 was the last year for the Elan, but it had a 25-year run and didn't change much from 1971. The base Elan in 1996 was still using bogey wheels.

That is what I did - carry oil with me, add it at the pump. Takes a bit of estimating. I had a paper with a little table that listed how many ounces of oil to add per gallon. This is an easy calculation - hint- there are 128 oz in a gallon, so if you need 40/1 mix, divide 128/40 to get the number of ounces per gallon. When in doubt, add a little extra...

Rock the sled back and forth a bit after you add it to mix, and you are good to go.

My sled is oil injected, I carry extra oil in a ss water bottle for when in need, or another rider for that matter. I’ve never had to dip into my reserve but have portioned it out to friends twice in past
