Owning a boat can be very expensive. I’m not talking about just the boat itself; I’m talking about the parts and the maintenance. I spent a lot of money on my engine and I want to make sure that it’s getting the best possible care. I change the oil myself every few weeks to make sure there is no carbon buildup that can be potentially damaging.
I noticed that my engine only runs on Evinrude XD100 oil. I asked a mechanic if I was able to use another brand because it can be a bit expensive. He told me that the setting my engine was on requires me to use that specific brand. Then he gave me the name of a store where I can buy some at bulk so it would be cheaper for me in the long run. That was helpful of him because I’m always looking to save a few dollars.
