I'm breaking in the MCX in my 2005 210VRS. The manuals says oil consumption is normal during this period. So I check it everytime before taking the boat on the lake. What the manual doesn't say is what oil to put back into the engine. The normal oil is 15w-40 penzoil, but what is the break in oil? The dealer told me the oil is thinner for this break in period. The dipstick has four holes for the operating range. Mine has two of the holes filled.

Thanks

We use the same oil....how many hours are on the boat now?

10 hours, the dealer told me to bring it back in at 20 hours, which will work out for getting it serviced and winterized.

Thanks

We always do a 10 hour check which is at the end of the break-in to verify the engine has no "codes" in it, oil change, check all alignments, lug nuts on trailer, trailer lights, all accessories functioning properly on the boat, etc.
