    Default Winterizing

    I watched a video on YouTube on winterizing newer 4 stroke outboards, they said instead of fogging,mix 5 gallons gas,2quarts 2 cycle oil and 1 Oz of stabil.Can this mixture be cut in half of the ingredients?

    Sure, why not - or any "equivalent ratio" for that matter - you just need the same proportion of gas, oil and stabilizer for their concoction.

    I saw the same recommendation on a boating show (series) where they were (teaching/demonstrating) the technique to Merc Tech's in training so it must be (acceptable).

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)
