G2 Gear Oil Change

I'd it important to change gear oil yearly?

How about fuel filter? Is changing the fuel filter, simply as unscrewing and screwing the new one back on? Is their any bleeding of the air required?

According to the Evinrude G2 Operator's Guide, the gear oil change interval is 5 years/500 hours under normal recreational conditions. If you feel better changing it more often, that is not a problem just be sure to use the recommended Evinrude HPF-Pro lubricant.

 

The fuel filter on the motor is the same spin-on design that Evinrude has used since 1999. There is no bleeding required, just apply a bit of oil on the rubber seal ring and hand tighten only.

 

Everything should be explained in the operator's guide. If you do not have one, download a copy at  http://www.operatorsguides.brp.com/  , click on the pull down menu and select EVINRUDE.
