Oil Viscosity in a 2003 Merc 4 stroke 75

2 posts in this topic

Merc lists two oil options based on temperature, 10W-30 and 25W-40 for use above 40 deg. Is there any advantage to using 25-40 oil? I had thought about using 25W-40 until my boat ride across Big Sandy on Sunday morning in 30 degree temps. That was fun ooo.gif

I am planning on using Amsoil if it makes any difference.

Thanks, John

A 75 HP - yours must be an outboard. It has been my experience that most Mercury 4-stroke outboards prefer the 10W-30, while the I/O and inboards Merc. preferred viscosity listing is 25W-40.

The AMSOIL preferred products - for 10W-30 use AMSOIL prod. code WCT and for 25W-40 use AMSOIL 10W-40 prod. code WCF. These are both FC-W marine warranty certified for all marine applications.

For more info please e-mail me direct, and I will return you the data sheet and other info.

      Sorry, been offline for a while. Yes you can STILL drive out there if you're brave. I've seen people do it last night and they are probably still driving out there today. I'm going to go check in a bit, fishing has been pretty stellar as of late.
