I am going to help a friend today get her boat ready. One thing I'm doing is changing the oil. I have a Mercruiser and have the OM. She doesn't. Can anyone tell me what oil to use? If I use the same oil (SAE 30W) as I use in my engine, will that be fine?

Thanks,

Robb

Robb, They recommend Pennzoil Marine 15w / 40. I can never find that brand, so I buy Rotella 15/40 at Walmart and have no problems in either boat I have owned. It is a approved brand from Indmar.

Robb, our local Walmart sells the Pennzoil Marine 15w/40. It's not with the automotive oil, but with the boat and fishing supplies.

Randy, I have searched 5 walmarts in the tulsa area (including with the boat and fishing supplies) and have never been able to find it.

Why?

Anyone listening to the smack off on Jim Rome today.

insuranceman, guess I got lucky. This store is in Winston-Salem, NC. Bought it and changed the oil when I winterized my bought this winter. Found it by accident.

My marina used to sell it, but now tell me UAP has discontinued it.
