Extra Verado maintenance over etec consists of a whole 7.4 qts of engine oil and filter change every 100 hrs. Is that a big deal? Pump oil out from dipstick with boat still in water or drain from above lower unit area boat out of water. Takes a whole 15-30 minutes. How many gallons of 2 stroke oil and what will be the cost used by the etec in 100 hrs? As mentioned Verado Club priceless. Buy maintenance items from their cooperating venders at a discount.
