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

I don't have much experience with what to reccomend for Ams Oil...

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
