    Etec lower unit oil

Rated:

 I have a 2006 Etec 225HO, what lower unit oil should I be using? The reason I ask is there is a new counter guy at my evinrude dealer and he told me to use HPF PRO. I had always used HPF XR. He Also said the two could be mixed. Just looking for a sanity check before I use the PRO and top it off with a little XR. Thanks in advance for replys.

 I have a 2005 225 Etec HO.


Page 19 in the service specifications has "Ultra-HPF Gearcase Lubricant" as the correct fluid.


Capacity is either 33.1 oz, 41 oz or 44 oz depending on the gearcase type.


I would not fear mixing any version of HPF that is direct from Evinrude.

 The current recommended oil is HPF-Pro for the E-TECs. It is a special high-performance lube designed to last 3 years or 300 hours in normal recreational use.


Originally there was also HPF-XR but now that's been discontinued to simplify maintenance items, only one oil is recommended at this time.


The Ulra-Hpf is obsolete and was only used in the early E-TECs outboards until the XR and Pro oils became available.
