Would love guidance on these topics as well. If you boat frequently and use fresh fuel, it is not needed all the time. Running it at is not lugging the motor but it’s also not at the top of the rpm range XD setting safe enough? I’m way past the 5 hours of break in at high RPM. If you can find the last rpm through motor height or changing props you could gain a little more speed on top end if you wanted. Oops meant to say “And is there any reason not to just leave it on the TC-W3 setting — I really do not mind spending a little more on oil.

Evinrude XD-100 Synthetic Oil

Am I right in assuming that the TC-W3 setting just pumps more oil through the engine than the xd setting? Don’t xxd100 that you have to use XD oil only at that setting. Thanks to you and Bill for the very helpful info. Lots of questions but as noted these engines are a huge investment and I want it to last a very long time.
