Your Ski-doo dealer will wave his arms and try to tell you that using anything other than XPS Full-Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil in your Rotax E-TEC engine will have catastrophic results. While he will be impassioned and may get spittle on your jacket, he’s only telling you the partial truth.

It is true that if you try to get away with using a cheap 2-stroke oil in your E-TEC engine, the outcome could be less than desirable. Ski-Doo’s E-TEC 600cc and 800cc 2-stroke engines are among the most technologically advanced engines in the snowmobile industry. They employ direct injection and an on-board computer to deliver the appropriate amount of fuel and oil based on riding conditions. The E-TEC engine’s 2-stroke oil needs are regulated by thousands of computer calculations per second, so there is minimal oil used and emissions are lowered dramatically. But as E-TEC engines do pack a punch in terms of horsepower, what precious little oil is going through the engine has to capably prevent wear and deposit formation.

We have a 2-stroke oil that is verified by field and lab testing to prevent wear and RAVE valve deposits in Ski-Doo E-TEC engines. AMSOIL Interceptor Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil is an ultra-premium product that prevents wear, reduces friction, burns clean and flows in arctic weather. To prove our point, AMSOIL has performed a cache of testing to prove its worth in E-TEC engines. Interceptor has earned a legendary reputation in the snowmobile industry, so you won’t go wrong with this product.

XPS Mineral 2-Stroke Oil is offered at Ski-Doo dealers for carbureted engines that may be found in older sleds or their latest models with the Rotax 550F engine.
