When someone asks if you checked your oil, open the glove box and show them this.

Everybody has an opinion. My engine Guru says 20-50 Castrol and change every 10 hours and 20 at the most.

Engines equipped with O-berg filters so it is breeze to check for metal etc.

Amsoil Dominator 2 stroke Synthetic racing oil. Havent owned the boat long enough to tell if its worth the extra money to run this stuff over the Merc full synthetic. I guess time will tell.

Castrol and Kendall 20W-50 are great products. If you really change every 10 hours...why not....going to 20 hrs? I would do 4 qts of the Castrol to 1 qt of Mobil-1 15W-50....a great syn-mix.

m1 vtwin 20/50 only. Nothin but the best for my babe!!!!!!!!!! M1-302 filter as well, why put the good stuff in with a cheap filter. Change every 20/25 hours or when the boat sits in between seasons.

I run Kendall 20w50 GT1 on 20 hour OCI. 10 hours if I run a Poker Run. With an M1-302 filter. Is there a benefit to running synthetic on a 20 hour oil change, if my temps are under 210?

I've used it for about three seasons, I have a blower motor and haven't had any problems with it. It hardly uses any oil, oil pressure is always good, what more can you ask for? I do leak a tiny bit of oil in the bilge and I can't figure out where it's coming from, I think it my be the crank case ventaltion tube where it connects to the air intake. If I had any complaints about that oil its that its impossible to clean up. I cant for the life of me get it out of my bilge, first of all I can't reach under my motor, and second of all no matter what cleaners I dump down there the dark color never comes out. Any suggestions?
