Re: Considering a NEW in Box 2015 Etec DE300 counter rotating single outboard application...

Ok  so the install is almost complete... 

 

My question now is...  what oil to use?

 

XD 50 or XD 100 oil ?   Can you use XD 50 during the first few runs then switch to XD 100??

 

your advice is greatly appreciated...

Yes, you can switch oils on your G2 if you wish. Of course you are probably aware that XD-100 oil is the very best for your Evinrude E-TEC  G2   300 HP
