Re: Engine

Hi Joe,

 

Evinrude outboards has been going strong for over 100 years now. They make the successful  E-TEC engines from the 15HO up to 300 hp plus market a line of portable outboards up to 15hp. Sometimes the E-TEC moniker overshadows the Evinrude company name just like Mustang overshadows the FORD name.

Re: Engine

Hello,

Does the engine takes a lot of being driven on high RPM´s? I always go with high octane fuel and XD 100 oil. I also wonder why my G2 combusts so much oil, it can be as much as 1 gallon after 15 hours of operating time. 

 

Regards,

Re: Engine

High octane fuel is not needed for Evinrude E-TEC engines. They are designed for a minimum of 87 octane.

 

They can be run at all speeds within the factory recommended rpm range.

 

Oil consumption is not determined by hours, but is very minimal compared to older engines of all makes. The EMM, onboard computer, determines how much lubricant is needed at each instant from the throttle opening, rpm, temperatures, acceleration rate, and engine load.  An overpropped or over-revved motor will consume much more oil than a correctly set-up engine as the EMM senses the motor is being abused and directs more lubricant to the motor for protection.

 

If you cruised for 15 hours burning about 9 gallons per hour on the average for a V6, that would be 135 gallons of gas with 1 gallon of oil consumed.  135:1.  If you averaged only 6 gallons per hour - that computes to 90:1.
