Oil injection question?

10 posts in this topic

I currently run the xd50 in my 99 Johnson 115. Can I run the new XD100 or is that only for the E-Tech?

Yes, you can use it in all motors manufactured after 1993.

I just switched my 115 Johnson over to a full synthetic as well. I thought about the XD100 but there is a much cheaper alternative that is highly recomended.

I purchase a gallon of Amzoil at Fleet Farm for $27. The last time I saw the XD100 it was around $45. This is my first amzoil ever purchased but I've been hearing guys brag about it for many years so I had to give it a try. It smokes less at cold startup is the only difference I can see.

You got a good price for a single gallon at $27.00 - AMSOIL's "minimum suggested retail" is currently $27.45 plus 5% energy surcharge for $28.82, plus their freight charge. Even the preferred customer wholesale plus shipping charge on a single gallon will get you $30.29. However, you can save considerably by buying by the case (4 gallons) preferred customer wholesale direct - wholesale price plus energy surcharge and shipping for $83.79 or $24.46 per gallon

I have a 1987 Suzuki DT115 outboard on my forester and i was wondering which oil should I run? I just bought the boat this past summer. The guy at the marina told me to use Evinrude XD30. Is this a good choice or should I use the XD50. Also what would I gain using XD50 vs XD30 (power, less carbon, or nothing?)? Thanks

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
