  • 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.
