In your operator's guide it specifies that Evinrude  XD-100 oil is required in cold weather.

Very often hard starting in cold weather is due to weak or undersized batteries cranking the motor over slower. Also in the operator's guide, there are higher minimum specifications for a battery if the motor is used in freezing weather. Talk to your dealer.

Thanks Guys this has been an isteresting Read. I have a mate that has just repowered with 2 4 stroke mercs. He has 20 L of XD100 that he wanted to give me. I am running an Evinrude Ocean Pro 150 96' Model . It appears I can do this once i have run a decarbon through the exhaust Chanber.

Thanks
