I was just wondering how much trouble it would be to get gid of the automatic oil mixer and just fill the gas tank with oil manually. Has anyone every done this before? The automatic mixer works good for now but I am just scared that it will stop and the motor keep running causing it to lock up. What all would I have to do to make it work. I would appreciate any info on how to do this or maybe a link to a web site that would show me what all I need to do. I have a 2005 Nitro NX882 with a Mercury XR6 150hp. thanks everybody.
