It is about 10 hours with some full throttle periods to get it all seated correctly. Great resource is www.veradoclub.com. The guy that runs the site Glen is a little grumpy but the owners tips pdf is fantastic and the knowledge on the forum is second to none.

Thats a really good website. Nice to see Merc and the owners are doing a joint development programme!

I wonder if Verado owners will ONLY buy Mercury oil in case the engine blows up??? Or do they realise an oil good enough for a Ferrari is good enough for them?

Ahh just reading through the forums some people are brave enough to use Mobil or Castrol.......

Well I don't give a sausage!

My new and shiny Verado will be running on the pukka and expensive warranty required oil!
