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 can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
