Hi all
After cleaning the oil from the cylinders. what is the best oil to use in by 4 stroke Suzuki o/b, it takes 10w-40 somebody told me to use yamalube as that is the best or does it matter if I use Suzuki/any other marine oil.
Cheers for the advice
Kevin

Hi all
I think your right Jeff in my car I use castrol as that's what the manufacturer recommends , so using Suzuki oil in Suzuki o/b would make sense and keep the engine good
Cheers kevin

The one thing I learned from my time in car manufacturing (not quite the same I know) was that it's less about the make of oil you use (provided the viscosity is correct) and more about the frequency that you change it, if that makes sense?

You can't change the oil (of any engine) too often in my experience.

Your right duggy my car oil is changed on a regular basis and I would change to oil in the o/t during the winter (out of season)
Cheers Kevin
