Can I use the 100 if my dealer said it's programmed for the 50.
Actually XD-100 oil would provide the best protection for your engine in every condition. That is what is recommended for heavy duty use.
On your 50 HP, it consumes so little oil during running anyway that you probably would not notice a difference in usage.
