Evinrude V4 Questions

Quick Question?....

I have a 1985 V4 85Hp Evinrude It runs excellent...You are going to think I am an idiot for asking you this question!!!

- Is this a two stroke or a four stroke? I just got it and installed it on my boat, I feel like a moron asking you this but truthfully I just don't know...if it is a two stroke what is the best fuel mixture?

In your opinion is this outboard a reliable/good performer? Are there any particular things that I should know and or look out for?

Thank You very much in advance,
Stuart Steele

2 Stroke - mix the fuel 50 to 1 (1 pint to 6 gallons) with TCW-III oil. Regular grade fuel is fine on this engine. These 85 V-4's were great and run, seemingly, forever.
