I'm not an oil snob. I go with cheapest. All my past boats got Rotella from wallyworld. I change very frequently, so I don't think it really matters. As long as it meet minimum requirements. New boat with LS3 requires Dexos 5w-30 so the Rotella is out.

Ended up going with a gallon of Penzoil Marine and a quart of West Marine. The guy at West Marine knew nothing. He was lucky to know how to handle the cash register.

+1 I also buy whatever is on sale, I have run them all...delo, rotella, pennzoil, etc...I won't buy Walmart, Autozone, O'Rieleys brands tho. They might work just as good but I just stick with the name brand stuff.

West Marine seems to be most adept at repackaging things others make and charging a large premium for those items.

Likely that any oil West Marine sells coulds be had at half the price within a 10 mile radius at a handful of retailers.
