Synthetic oil in a 4 stroke?

Question

muskiechaser

So here's a question I hope some of you more experienced 4-stroke owners can answer. I recently bought a 75 HP Merc 4-stroke and I was wondering what your opinions are on sticking with the Merc oil or going with a synthetic like Amsoil. I have been running synthetic oil in all my vehicles for about 15 years with no problems. Just wondering what everyone else does.

Thanks, John

I run Amsoil in my 99 Yamaha 50 hp fourstroke. I change it every year, although it probably doesn't need it. Pretty cheap oil change. Just a couple qts. of oil, and a oil filter.

AMSOIL recommends not going longer than annually. Condensation, rust protection, etc.

AMSOIL now has the NMMA certified 4-stroke marine lubes, available in 10W-30 (prod. code WCT) and 10W-40 (prod. code WCF).

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
