What oil does everyone use?

Recommended Posts

Roush611

I am looking to change the oil on my new to me 2001 Wakesetter this weekend.  I know the factory recommends Pennzoil 15w40 for the Inmar monsoon for this year boat, but I wanted to see what other option are acceptable since that oil is difficult to find locally. It seems to me that any oil meeting the cj4 standard should be acceptable correct? 

Sorry if this has been hashed out a million times searching did not provide me anything of substance

I order my Penzoil off Amazon.

I order my 15W40 Marine Penzoil from Bakes with the rest of my winterization stuff, but any similar oil is just fine.

Synthetic. I don't think the boat needs it. Just habit.

May consider a switch to Rotella. Anything besides 15w40 to look for on the bottle?

I run this, very reasonably priced.  I change every 45-50 hrs.  I am pretty convinced every name brand oil is comparable, just change it at the proper intervals.  I have also run Pennzoil and Rotella.

Indmar ls3 says Mobil 1. It's pretty cheap at Walmart by the gallon.

Amsoil 15w-40 diesel, marine oil. Napa Gold 1061 filter it's a little longer than the 1069.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Just to confirm, the Napa Gold 1069 filter is the correct filter for a 2001 Monsoon 5.7?
