thank you for the reply its definately a 50:1. - yes we have the correct 2 stroke oil as recommended by the Outboard guys. Looks like he is going for the little bit more than too little approach with the 500ml in the 22l tank (bearing in mind we probably only went to 21L with the fuel. Ill try to be as accurate as we can be and certainly will put at least the correct amount in. Will never put 'under' the 50:1 ratio.
Just a note ,when in marina small children should wear a life jacket as if they fall in they go under boat hulls and don't float to the top and things happen.
