I know i have Yamaphoba , but the e-tecs are not mind blowing quicker than any of the others. that engine test report proved that. also the servicing (I think) is based on 100 hrs ayear so the 3 year thing is great if you dont do big hours.What worrys me is the deprecation and the fact there is no track record, is fuel plus oil comsumption that much better,also cost as you have the extra cost of 2 stroke oil I would feel much more at ease if i could see more of the charter/rental companys using them. if any one can convince me that a E-tec is as good to own over 5/7 years then i will recormend it to my brother in law who wants to be a beliver as he needs a engine quick.

Oil consumption with ETEC is something I would like to know about. As it is not mixed with the fuel and is only squirted onto the bits that need lubricating, I guess it should be a lot less than old style 2 strokes, once run in.

So come on all you ETEC owners (Brambles, Jackeens, and Robin [exETEC]), how much do you use? Is it around the amount you would swill out of a 4 stroke sump each year?

Hi Mark,

Whilst we know how much oil we have used to date it includes the "over oiling" hours in the early days, so the data won't be of any real use.

Suffice it to say it has ranged from frightening to not very much at all. Don't suppose that helps really does it?

Cheers.

Ian

Errr....................No.

Thanks all the same Ian.
Perhaps when you get some idea you could let us all know.

Hello Mark,

We have an ETEC 250HP and are using the XD50 oil. We have put 130 hours on our engine and average oil use is 1l of oil for 60 l of fuel.

With the engine block being replaced and having to run the engine back in, Im hesitating to use de XD 100 oil. From what I have heard the ratio would be between 1:100 and 1:120 depending on your average speed.

Is there someone using the XD 100 oil that can confirm this?

Paul

does the ETEC engine really not have to see a dealer for three years not even too have the gearbox oil changed?
Our dealer replaced the gearbox oil after 20 hours. From that on it should be more or less every 300 hours.

Depending on your cruising speed you should replace the spark-plugs every 100 to 150 hours. We had to replace them at 120hours (its getting hard to fire up the engine after a while).

So if approx 1lt oil to 60 lts of fuel how much is the oil (cost) and would it follow that if you did 8 hours flat out the engine would burn approx 60 lts an hours give or take a bit, so eight hours = 8 lts of oil aganst the four stroke having the sump oil replaced every 100 hours, Have i got that right.

Roy,

WOT on the 250 HP is 80l/hour. And yes your calculation is correct (8 hours WOT would burn around 10 l of oil but at WOT Im doing a little more than 50kn so that gives me 10 l for 400 nm).

But my cursing speed is around 30kn. At that speed I use 35l/h. so after 8 hours of cruising at 30kn I will have burned 4.5 l of oil but Ill also have done 240 NM

If you are using XD 100 oil, it would mean you used about 2.5 l of oil for 8 hours cruising

Paul
