Beyond the pre-season checkup and maintenance, you can follow these suggestions to make sure your snowmobile runs cleaner and quieter.

Engine oil
  • Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for type of oil and gas.
  • Tune the engine for your altitude, including the proper carburetor jet setting, which improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions.
  • Change the spark plugs at least once during the season to ensure efficient fuel burning.
  • Avoid opening and closing the throttle continuously, which causes inefficient fuel burning and increases emissions and noise.
  • Don’t tamper with your stock exhaust pipes as that may cause the machine to exceed legal noise limits.
