Is the oil setting something you can change with the software/laptop?

Shell Nautilus TCW3 is available here at about a fiver a litre so I think it would be a better bet, I am running the Johnson on Castrol Outboard 2T at the moment which was about half that price but the buggers have stopped making it!

You can change it using the Evinrude Diagnostic software

Just what I wanted to hear

I presume the difference is just the qty of oil injected?

You could ask the supplier to pack a few years' quantity of oil with the boat when they ship it to you.
