My new 1968 6HP Fisherman

My last motor was an 200 Ocean Pro!   I have considerably downsized to this wonderful little motor and I'm getting ready to get some fresh non-ethanol gas. Which oil I should use?

Thanks for your response

The Evinrude XD-30 oil is good for your motor, but for only a few dollars more per gallon, you can get better engine protection and less smoke using the XD-50 semi-sythetic outboard oil.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. If you elect to do it yourself, be sure to use caution, common sense, and to observe all safety procedures in the vicinity of gasoline, moving engine parts, high temperature components, heavy items, and electrical or ignition systems.

Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with a repair. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
