Xps oil

Saw sales of xd100 XPS BRP oil. Is that the upgraded version of the old xd100 oil, or is it for another type of unit other than the E-Tec outboards? Thank you

Re: Xps oil

It is the same as XD100. XPS is just the new name BRP is using for their oils

 From a BRP publication to Evinrude dealers:

 

The XPS brand is a well-known market leader in the Powersports industry. The XPS brand has a rich heritage of performance, reliability and has been perfect symbiosis with BRP vehicles. Our Evinrude products represent the same standards and values. It made sense to create a XPS Marine brand to coincide with our current XPS line-up of oils. Along with updated packaging, you will notice an extensive marketing and advertising effort that will assist in growing the XPS brand and educating our mutual consumers.


The packaging has been changed to align with our entire line-up of BRP XPS oil products. 
All of our oil products will keep the same XD sub-brand and color coding (gold, blue, and red) that the market has grown accustomed to. The oil formulation that our mutual consumers have trusted to keep their Evinrude and Johnson outboards running clean all these years will remain unchanged.


Consumers will easily be able to identify which oil is right for their engine by looking at the technology meter on the back label of all our XPS branded oils.

Re: Xps oil

Is it OK to mix the new XPS 100 with a half tank of the older XD 100?, it is a different color, much darker

OK to mix but good practice to run until the oil level is low, then add 

 

 

Make sure it says XD-100 and Evinrude on the container and not SeaDoo Synthetic
