How to Fog an Outboard Motor for Winter


Winterizing your outboard motor is an important step to extend the life of the motor. In colder climates this is especially important. Each outboard motor manufacturer has specific instructions for winterizing the motor, including how to fog your motor. Fogging the engine provides protection against corrosion and dry starts. It also helps extend the engine life and reduces operating expenses. The fogging oil is an aerosol can that is sprayed directly into the engine during the winterizing process.

Tips & Warnings
