Can I use the 100 if my dealer said it's programmed for the 50.

Actually XD-100 oil would provide the best protection for your engine in every condition. That is what is recommended for heavy duty use.

 

On your 50 HP, it consumes so little oil during running anyway that you probably would not notice a difference in usage.

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.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
