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.

    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
