I have a Johnson 115 which has an oil injection system and I want to carry a small reserve tank as emergency fuel source. Will the oil injection still work if a portable emergency tank is connected?

Just keep a bottle of two stroke oil in your locker for if you need it. For the fuel, just carry a 2 gallon tank with pourer if you have a fixed tank. I carry 2 x 6 gallon Moeller tanks, and have one on and one full. I rotate them when one goes empty, I use the spare and fill the empty one which goes on next.

And to answer your question, that is no problem. Oil injection is driven from the throttle opening on the carburetor, nothing to do with the fuel source. The wider the throttle, the more oil is pumped.

Have a johnson 200 hp ocean runner.carbs have oil in fuel when i let the motor run for abouy 5 minutes the low oil alarm starts beeping.

Check if your oil feed hose isn't bent or cracked.
It' a sign the oil from your tank couldn't get to the engine fast enough...
If it's a 2 hose oil tank, check if your oil tank cap is wel sealed.

Johnson 115 V4 no push at low revs and no oil alarm at hi revs

Good Morning George,
First Thing To Do Is Use Pre Mixed Fuel Until This Problem Is Solved Or Engine Damage Could Be The Result.
Pre Mix Fuel -Oil Ratio Is 50:1
Have You Tried Priming The Oil With The Primer On The Oil Tank Supply Line?
Is The Oil Tank In The Boat Low On Oil?
Let Me Know If You Have Any Luck!

2001 Kawasaki EL 250 Eliminator V oil coming out of the breather

Hi, Bidie46 and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.
