Amsoil for Honda

6 posts in this topic

I have a Honda 4stroke(200), what would be the Amsoil of choice? Also, should the oil be changed every year with Amsoil as you would with normal oil?

Thanks for your help.

I believe I just answered in a personal e-mail, but for everyone else's benefit since frequently others want to know the same info:

For all the 4-stroke outboards AMSOIL now has 2 FC-W approved 4-stroke marine motor oils: 10W-40 and 10W-30.

I believe that the preferred viscosity for the Hondas is 10W-30 (as also most other outboards). Most inboards and in-out units prefer 10W-40.

Service Interval: AMSOIL recommends do not exceed once a year. For outboards the AMSOIL marine 4-stroke oils are not and extended service interval - use the OEM longest recommended interval. For inboards you can use double the OEM intervals.

I run the 10w30 in my Yamaha 4 stroke 115 and I really like it.

I run 50hp. hondas at my resorts and our dealer started out with 10w-30 in all of them, but a few were burning oil?, so they switched a couple them to 15w-40 and it seems to have fixed the problem.

I would change the oil yearly. There should be a sticker near where the engine mounts on the transom that lists the weight of oil to use. My Johnson 140HP and 9.9HP motors take 10w-40.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
