Is it a term of your warranty that servicing is carried out by an approved Soozook dealer?

I presume you mean a DF150?

If so, from the magic book of words...

API classification: SE, SF, SG, SH, SJ
or NMMA FC-W classification: SE, SF, SG, SH, SJ

Viscosity rating: SAE 10W-40 or NMMA FC-W 10W-40

Amounts: 8.0 L : Oil change only
8.5 L : Oil [&] filter change

If what you've got is pre-owned with no service history - enjoy!
If you bought it from new - well, you're probably allowed to have it serviced by a competent person and keep the warranty under EU rules. But there could be stipulations as to the parts used; although as far as I am aware the nice guys at Suzuki don't mix their own oil, so you can use what you like as long as it meets their specifications.
Own-brand used chip fat is probably a no-no.

The Grocer is correct regarding the oil spec. However Suzuki have just introduced a range of lubes for the Four Stroke engines made by Motul. These are semi synthetic. Contact your nearest good Suzuki Marine Dealer who should be able to assist.

See what happens when you live on the edge of the map? You only find things out when they float past you. Perhaps I should get out more
