Oil for Honda 225

I need to source 10w30 Semi Synthetic oil to do all these 100 hour oil changes that are recommended for Honda

Any suggestions. I dont want to waste money on Honda Marine oil and apparently any decent SAE10W -30/40 API, SG, SH oil will be fine.

I need about 8 litres to do a full oil and filter change.

Thanks

IF you're sure, then any motor factors will supply it.

As far as I know, there isn't any difference between marine and auto 4 stroke oil. They both contain a pretty good anti-corrosion package, and the burn characteristics don't apply (which was the diff between 2-stroke oils, as I recall.)

And your point is?..

A 10W-30 weight oil is going to be the same viscosity no matter if it's Marine or not (can't see anything else that would be affected by temp.)

Lube oil is lube oil.

I don't know how old your engine is but some manufacturers can be particular about what brands of oils are used in they're engines when it comes to warranty.

Got some 10-40 semi castrol GTX on eBay. 27 for 8 litres on eBay as opposed to 65 for Honda oil. Probably better oil as well. !
