Muskiemouth I understand your reply.. I Should not have presented my question under this topic. The question really is what
oil is acceptable to use in the 250 G2..I know Xd100 is required in cold environments but is XD50 ok for normal useage.. There is not a lot of cost difference between the two but where we live it's a 100 mile round trip to the closest dealer..
Thanks in advance...
I have a G2 225 HO and i use XD100. According to all documenation (service manual and user manual) and the sticker on the oil fill area you can use either oils and still be covered by warranty.
However if you are using the engine under high loading conditions more than not, i personally would stick to XD100.
