Escape the Crunch of Steep Oil Prices

Escape the Crunch of Steep Oil Prices

I think there’s this misconception that those of us who use boats recreationally have a pile of money buried beneath their mattress. I can’t say that I’ve ever had anything more than a stack of comic books and dirty laundry under my bed (when I was a kid), but I can tell you that a pile of money is something that I do not have.

Luckily, I can purchase a 16 gallon drum of Evinrude outboard motor oil for under $500 through It’s a perfect buy for a budget-minded consumer and boat enthusiast such as myself. 16 gallons may not seem like much, but there’s realistically a few weeks out of the year that I can take my boat out, so it works out in the end.

What is an outboard motor?

Outboard MotorMake your boating experience better with Evinrude Oil and much more!

Outboard motors for a boat are developed as a self-contained unit with engine, subsidiary systems, and propeller, designed to be mounted at the stern (rear) of the craft. They are the most common motorized method of propelling small watercraft.

As well as providing propulsion, outboards provide steering control, as they are designed to pivot over their mountings and thus control the orientation of the propeller. The transmission leg in the water also acts as a rudder even when the propeller is not providing power.

When boats are out of service or being drawn through shallow waters, outboard motors can also be tipped forward trimmed up over their mounts to elevate the propeller and transmission shaft out of the water to avoid accumulation of seaweed or hitting underwater hazards such as rocks.

An Alert from the US Coast Guard


Reduce emissions with high-efficiency Evinrude motors and Evinrude oil!

Carbon Monoxide Advisory (Generator Exhaust)

Coast Guard Advisory to Recreational Boaters on Carbon Monoxide Hazard Caused by Generator Exhaust
The Coast Guard advises owners and operators of boats to turn off gasoline-powered generators with transom exhaust ports when the swim platform on the stern is in use. The Coast Guard further advises that swimmers should not enter the cavity of a boat designed with a generator emitting exhaust into the cavity between the swim platform and the transom of the vessel. The Coast Guard is concerned about the serious health risk from carbon monoxide poisoning and seeks to prevent loss of life and personal injury.

Why a Two Cycle E-Tec?

Why Evinrude E-Tec?


EASY TO OWN AND OPERATE Evinrude E-TEC outboards require no scheduled dealer maintenance – that’s right, zero – for the first three years or 300 hours of normal recreational use. Not even gearcase lube.

Evinrude E-TEC uses up to 75% less than typical 2-stroke carbureted engines and up to 50% less outboard motor oil than competitive direct injection engines (when run with Evinrude/Johnson XD 100 oil with optional dealer programming of the Engine Management Module, versus normal TCW3 oil). And you’ll use 30% less oil compared to a 4-stroke with a typical maintenance schedule under normal operating conditions.That’s just the start. The Evinrude E-TEC engines use an exclusive low friction design. There are no belts, no chains, no powerhead gears, no cams, and no mechanized oil pumps.* Reprinted from Evinrude website fact sheet!

How Can I Improve My Boat’s Fuel Efficiency?

Chick III

Step 1:
Clean the bottom of your boat. Plant and barnacle buildup causes extra friction that burns additional fuel.

Step 2:
Remove excess weight from your boat. If you have a lot of heavy objects in the boat that you do not regularly use, simply remove them. This can account for as much as a 2 percent reduction in miles per gallon.
