The one you change before its time
Seriously, everyone will have an opinion on what orks for them, but the truth is none of them will protect your engine like new oil. Change every 25 hours and that is the best protection you can give your engine!!

We need Hydrocruiser in this thread?

Aero Shell I'm thinking maybe a good way to go???

Shell oil say's
Quote:
AeroShell Oil W 15W-50
This multi-viscosity grade, ashless dispersant pitons engine oil is a unique blend of high quality mineral oil and synthetic hydrocarbon base stocks. Formulated to provide anti-wear and anti-corrosion protection, this oil offers you better lubricant performance from start-up through to high temperature operation. AeroShell W 15W-50 is considered to be superior to single grade oils in most applications.
The reason I'm asking is would not an oil formulated under more strict guidelines over automotive be better in a "harsh" marine enviroment? Gotta like the anti-corrosion additives protection claims, also benificial in the marine arena, I'd reckon..........
