I can confirm no visible smoke on XD100 in my 90s.

Except when I ran one on XD50 settings with XD100 in, then it smoked a bit on idle/startup...

No smoke with mine either.
I will add, putting an Etec into 'fogging mode' in a confined space will nearly kill you.

Mines on XD50 setting and I run that in it. The only time it smokes is after even a short period of 20+kts, after slowing down for a good 30 seconds of so there is a failry large plume of smoke coming from it. Probably just my driving though

I have to say that i have not experienced any smoking from the engines at start up or any other time despite being set on XD50 and run on XD100.

OK a bit of a mixed bag then ... I've asked Roy what he thinks about oil and what the cost is from him so will see what he comes back with.

Thanks

That's not smoke its steam. If it its grey or black then its smoke and to be honest you would probably need to get that checked out by a dealer as it should not happen.

All E-tecs will send out a plume of white steam when they drop down to idle after a run.

It'd be interesting to know what the Evinrude take on this stuff would be, seeing as it's designed for using at 100:1

Um.. Right! Always willing to learn from others I will check it out further tomorrow when we set out on the first leg of our little week of cruising the channel islands

I wouldn't think very much as that oil is a premix oil and etec's are not premix engines. The oil settings on etecs do not refer to 50:1 or 100:1 but to the evinrude oil types XD50 & XD100 and the ratio it is injected at is very dependent on how the engine is being used.

This oil is more suitable but I would still only use it on the XD50/TC-W3 setting.

Yes, but I think you can still disconnect the oil system and run it on premixed should you desire. Just as many with autolube yams do/did. I don't think that it would be too much hassle.
