Learned a lesson! And it did cross my mind before I did it!

I winterize my water system and generator last week and while I was at it I decided to suck out the engine oil and change filters. One thing, I didn’t buy any oil yet (I had for the generator). Sure enough I can’t find any locally! I ordered some online and I don’t think I’ll receive it in-time before I get pulled out. I picked up some Lucas Marine oil today at Walmart, never seen it before. I could’ve just bought some cheap oil in the meantime but the oil I ordered won’t go to waste.

    I wouldn't get hung up on 25w40....does Volvo Penta recommend 25w40 on their motors?   Pretty sure crusader recommends 15w40 on identical GM provided motors.

    I like t6 but my motors don't(except the TDI). If you want to find out if you have leaks on an older motor put in the t6.  I stick with the t4 as it keeps the Rover V8 and my vm4.2 from leaking (as much) oil.
