Evinrude XD50 Oil in the Cabinet

domo online blog 2 6-23-14When I was young, we would often go out on my grandfather’s boat. It was a large boat, far larger than my father’s, so I felt safe on it even when the waves got pretty rough. Whenever we were moving from one harbor to the next, my grandma would make sure that I stayed in the cabin, where there was no risk of me falling off of the boat while it was running.

Sometimes in especially rough weather, the cabinets in the boat would open and the contents would escape. My grandfather usually had some ropes, fishing gear, and some Evinrude XD50 oil in the cabinets. Whenever, the cabinets would spill their contents it was my job to put everything back where it came from. I had to do this many times during our trips.

Taking Some Evinrude Outboard Oil Along for the Ride

domo online blog 1 6-16-14My uncle thinks that his boat might have some sort of an oil leak. He can’t be sure because he hasn’t actually seen any oil leaking out into the water or onto the street and it would usually be easy to see leaking oil from a boat motor. All the same when he checked his oil reservoir, he discovered that the oil in his motor was low, which is odd since he just filled it.

Until he has time to get his boat looked at by a professional, my uncle plans to keep some Evinrude outboard oil on hand and check the reservoir regularly to see if there is a low amount of oil. Until then, he will only take the boat out on short trips and regularly check to see if there is oil leaking into the water. At the first sign of trouble, he will return to shore.

Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil is Part of My Summer Routine

domo online blog 1 6-9-14On most weekends during the summer, I take my boat out on the lake to enjoy the beautiful weather. Even when the weather is not so great, I will go out because I’ll usually have most of the lake to myself. My weekend routine focuses around prepping my boat for the day out on the lake and heading out onto the lake.

Before I go out each weekend, I make sure that I have the proper mix of Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil running through my outboard engine. I try to get to the boat launch early, because then I can usually beat the crowd of families that will show up at the launch later on. Once I get my boat into the water and my truck parked, I am ready for a fun weekend excursion.

Evinrude Oil is Making it a Little Easier to Breathe

domo online blog 3 5-12-14I have always loved living on a lake up into the point in the year when all of the people with speed boats come out and race around the lake, leaving some of us choking on their filthy exhaust. Since I enjoy boating myself, I understand that exhaust is just a part of the boating experience. However, I happen to know that the amount of soot and sludge in the exhaust is not necessary.

When people use cheaper oil, they end up with nastier things coming out in their exhaust. There is a lot more soot and ash in the exhaust which isn’t good for your engine or the environment. I always stick with Evinrude oil because it cuts back on these nasty emissions at least somewhat by having lower ash content in the oil that the engine has to use.

Out on the Lake Appreciating Evinrude Outboard Oil

domo online blog 1 4-14-14The arrival of the spring season has meant warm sunny weekends and many chances to take the boat out on the lake. Since spring also means my allergies are already acting up the last thing that I want to deal with is exhaust from my boat motor making me choke. With a lot of filthy smoke added to the rest of the allergens a day on the lake kind of sucks.

Luckily, I was able to go out on my boat this weekend without worrying about exhaust smoke adding to my allergy symptoms. This is because my motor has been running a lot cleaner since I switched to Evinrude outboard oil. There is a lot less exhaust smoke which makes me a lot happier when I am out on the lake in my boat.

A Tradition in Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil

domo online blog 1 4-7-14When I was growing up, the technology with boats and their engines was a little bit different. I remember the old depth finders that were a lot less accurate and didn’t necessarily give you the best readings. We didn’t have cool things like single lever control for the speed of a boat or a control system with a bunch of buttons to press.

Even back then with less technology, my uncle still relied on the Evinrude Johnson brand. He didn’t trust any oil other than Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil to keep his engine clean and running well. To this day, he still relies on the oil that he has used for boating back then, because it has never failed him.

Trusting Evinrude Oil in an Evinrude Motor

domo online blog 3 3-10-14My friend recently purchased a new boat. He ended up buying a used motor to go with the boat, since it did not come with one initially. It was an Evinrude motor that one of his friends had for a boat that they no longer chose to use anymore. My friend spent several hours reading up on the motor online, so that he could learn more about it.

He wanted to make sure that he could keep the motor running perfectly. He learned what kind of Evinrude oil needed to go in the motor, exactly how much oil to use, and what other maintenance needed to be performed regularly. He got a checklist of some of the required maintenance and decided to start fresh by getting these things done right away.

No Ads for Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil

When I was listening to the radio this morning, I heard a commercial for some variety of motor oil. They were advertising a special where you could buy three quarts and get the fourth one for half price. I realized then that I always heard ads for car oil on the radio, but I never have heard an ad that is specifically for any type of boat motor oil.

The only time I have seen any ads for this type of oil is when I have been watching something specifically boat related on the television. Only then are ads for Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil ever seen. I suppose that this is mainly because boat oil is such a specialized product. Most people do not need it in their day to day lives.

At the Marina with Evinrude Outboard Oil

domo online blog 1 2-03-14I always used to love going down to the marina. There is something great about being able to walk along the docks. There’s always the salty scent of the bay and the call of a seagull from on top of a pier. It reminds me of my childhood, when my sister and I would walk along the docks, waiting for our dad to be ready to take the boat out.

We would always read the boat names. Some of them were funny, others were serious. Sometimes we would run into other people, working on their boats. They’d be busy mixing Evinrude outboard oil or painting some part of their sailboat. The people were always friendly. They’d often say hello. It was peaceful out in the marina.

Long Lasting Evinrude Oil

domo online blog 1 1-13-14I always used to think that any oil that I’d had sitting around for a long time, was probably useless. I guess my thought was that since this is the case with gasoline, oil would work the same way. I know that gasoline slowly deteriorates over time. It becomes not only unusable, but also dangerous to use in an engine because its formula begins to break down.

With high quality motor oil, such as Evinrude oil, you needn’t worry if the oil is a little old. As long as it is a type of oil that your motor is made to use, the oil should not have degraded to the point where it is unusable or dangerous for your engine. Even if oil is left in its original container for a few years, it can still be used in your boat engine.

The History of BRP and Evinrude Outboard Oil

Domo-Online Pic 5Bombardier Recreational Products — also known as BRP — is a company that was founded in Quebec in 1942, which initially operated to create snowmobiles and related products. As time has gone on, the company has ventured into other territories including motorcycles, ATVs, and boating. There are a number of different subsidiaries and brands that are owned by BRP.

One of the company’s more recent acquisitions was that of Evinrude Outboard Motors, which was acquired after its former owners filed for bankruptcy. Evinrude Outboard Motors produces plenty of well-reviewed products including Evinrude outboard oil, which is perfect when used for outboard motors on boats.

Learning about Boats and Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil

Domo-Online Pic 1 1292013When you get a boat for the first time, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed with all of the information that you need to know. Some people purchase a boat without considering how much they should know about boating beforehand. You should know all of the laws about boating and fishing in your area, obviously, before you take a boat somewhere you’re not supposed to.

Additionally, you should learn a bit about your boat’s maintenance and the type of oil it takes. Some research should be done to determine what the best brand of oil is for your particular engine. I exclusively use Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil, but I had to make sure to put the time in to figure this out so that I could ensure that my boat was running the best it possibly could.
