XD-100 Programming for EMM

I have a new 2018 E-TEC 60 with about 12 hours on the clock and one month of use in the Gulf of Mexico salt water.  I would like to program the engine to run on the XD-100 setting and of course exclusively use XD-100 also.  I've gotten advice (free of course) from several people, including the local Evinrude mechanic that it would be better to run XD-100 but keep the EMM set to run TC-W3.  I find that advice a little conservative and very subjective and more of a "Belt and Suspenders" approach to preventive maintenance.

 

Are there benefits or drawbacks to running on either setting...assuming I plan to run XD-100 all the time.  Cost is not really an issue, but still I would rather not spend the extra $50 or so a year to burn more oil than necessary or beneficial.

 

Thanks

Todd

Re: XD-100 Programming for EMM

I have a 60 e-tec also, it is programmed for XD50 but I have been running the XD100 for quite some time now. There are some threads on the subject here and you'll see the same thing you have already been told. There are only a couple options really, xd50 setting-run 50 or 100, xd100 setting-run 100. With the small amount of oil I use it was an easy go with max protection choice. GL.

Thanks.  I thought it was posted to the wrong section which was the reason for posting again.  Please pardon my inexperience.

Not a problem.

 

For tech or engine questions it is best to post in the OWNERS ZONE.  I forgot to mention that earlier.
