Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • BRP E-Tech X100 oil ... who makes it ?

    E-Tech OB's use either X50 or X100 2 cycle oil and are ajusted for one or the other. I suspect the X100 is a 100:1 ratio type oil something like the Amsoil Saber. Anybody knows who bottles the X100 for BRP ? Just curious .. TX

    XD-100 is a proprietary oil designed by Evinrude. It is not an off-the-shelf oil with a different label on it.

    It is blended and bottled to Evinrude specs by companies that specialize in that business, just like other outboard manufacturer's oils are.

      Agreed, Nevertheless Evinrude is not an oil mfg. My basic question was "which company would bottles it for them" ?
      As for the difference between the WD-50 and the WD-100 that requires a different oil pump ajustement on the motor that is permanent enough for Evinrude to specify there should be no switch for one to the other unless the ajustement is re-done, I can only guess the name of the oil would give a clue on the 50:1 or 100:1 oil lubrification capacity in order to require such a mandatory ajustement on the motor. Still curious to know who bottles it for them.
      Tx for sharing.

        The E-TEC is the only motor that has the optional reduced-oil setting on certain models. XD-100 is the only oil that can be used with the optional reduced-oil setting and in addition, XD-100 can be used in or premixed in any other Johnson or Evinrude at the factory recommended ratio which is usually 50:1.

        From the factory the E-TECs are set for any TC-W3 oils and you can use the XD-100 without changing the setting if you wish.

        Some folks think that you can only use the XD-100 with an E-TEC at the reduced rate. The truth is that you can use the XD-100 at the regular rate if you wish. It also works very well in FICHT, "VRO" or premix J-E engines.

          This.

          BTW, BRP makes three oils, not two. You run XD30, XD50 and if you want to spend a lot of money, XD100 at the higher mix ratio (higher oil, not #). If you want to run the motor at the "leaner" oil ratio, you must reset the motor to do that and run XD100 only.
