I have a 2008 Evinrude E-TEC (new to me) and its about time to start adding some more oil to the tank. But I am completely lost as to what kind I need to use. I don't know whats in it already its still got some from the previous owner. Much prefer to be able to pick it up at a store opposed to ordering online.

The two oils recommended by Evinrude are xd50 and xd100. Until you can determine how the motor is programmed, I reccomend running xd100. Read up on etec owners website on the pros and cons of the different oils,

If it is a new to you motor, you will benefit by having a shop put the computer on it not only to see how it is programmed, but to also check for problem codes that may indicate a needed repair. That would also be a good time to do a scheduled maintenance on the motor, impeller, lower unit, spark plugs, etc. This is not a motor that you can tinker with in your garage.

Check domo-online for oil. If you buy by the case, it's cheaper delivered to your door than most dealers will sell it. I bought a three jug case and it came out to $37 delivered. The cheapest I've seen it at the shops was $34.50 and you have to have an Evinrude container, so you may as well buy it online. By the time you add sales tax, you are there.

thumb on what Bob said..

They should print you a history that will show which oil it is programmed for..

Helps out fellers like me that need it in writing to remember it... clap

We sell the XD50 for $23.00 a gal and the XD100 for $29.00 a gal. We buy it bulk and put it in our bottles. The XD50 is blue and the XD100 is brown. Hope this helps.

That's a heck of a deal I was paying more than that for Yamalube. I'll have to bring my bottles the next time I'm driving through. My Etec appears to hardly use any oil. I have 23 hours on the motor and I think it's used 1/2 gallon of XD100 including the break in programming.

We don't need your bottles. We have it already pumped into our bottles.
