I recently bought a 2009 polaris 120.

In reading the instruction manual, it shows that the engine should be fogged.

I have never fogged any of my 4 stroke engines. Any one else actually fogging theirs for the summer?

Lots of differing opinions here. I have a boat and really thought about this one. My sleds are stored in an enclosed trailer and not easy to access during the summer.

To "summerize" my 2 strokes this is what I do. From what I have read: The new synthetic oil has a tendency to drip off the internals more than conventional oil. I drain my gas tank then add 1 gallon of gas mixed with about 6 ounces of conventional 2 stroke oil and proper amount of stabol. I do fog mine as per instructions. I then pull the plugs and put a few squirts of fogging oil into each cylinder and roll over the engine by hand. Put the plugs back in and store it. That's what I do but others will have differing thoughts on this.

I also pull my batteries so that also makes it tough to start mine through the summer. If they were sitting in a garage and easy to get to I would just start them every 2 weeks or so..
