Understanding the Different Types of Evinrude Oil
It is generally recommended that after buying an outboard motor you continue to keep it running in great shape with oil that actually comes from the same company that made the engine. This is because the manufacturers of your motor have the best idea about exactly what the outboard motor needs. Choosing something from the manufacturer isn’t enough though.
You have to make sure that you are also using the right oil for the outboard motor that you have specifically. For example, it isn’t enough to just buy any type of Evinrude oil. You need to know the difference between XD100, XD50, and XD30 oil. You can usually find information about what specific type of oil needs to be used by reading your owners manual.
