E-Tec oils are temperature dependant???

Looking to buy a Etec 90 in the newt few months so I decided to download
the manual from the bombardier website. Apparently E-tecs MUST be run on xd100 in temps under 32 degC!???
Slightly optimistic delivering them set to run on lesser oil in the uk I think!!

cold weather operation

the E-TECs come from the factory setup for regular TC-W3 oil. In cold weather, just use the XD-100. To make things simpler, just use XD-100 synthetic oil all the time and have the motor set for the "reduced oiling" programming.

For freezing weather operation (32F - 0C), ALL oil injected Johnson and Evinrude engines require the XD-100 oil, not just E-TEC.

Mark,

I think you will find they only need to be run on XD100 if using them in sub freezing temps.

From the E-Tec 90 manual:
"IMPORTANT: When operating in conditions
under 32F (0C), Evinrude/Johnson XD100
oil must be used."


Got your "C" in the wrong place.
