Does anyone do their own service? What is entailed with the 100 hour dealer service?

What type, brand and weight oil do you use in your boat?

I have the 5.7 in my boat and the oil is a tad low. What oil should I use?

Thanks!

my 2005 mcx used 15-40 engine oil. my 2008 L18 uses straight 40 weight. however, i would have no idea what your engine uses. someone with more knowledge than me is gonna have to enlighten you. check with jim at bay area water sports (baws).

I've used 15-40 Rotella, Delo and Motorcraft in both the engine and trans and change them once a year. Seems to work well, no issues to date on any of my boats.

My 5.7 Vortec calls for 20W-50 on the cap and in the manual.

Rotella-T or Mobile Delvac diesel oil is a good choice. I have run both, the Rotella-T is slightly cheaper and it's what I run in my diesel truck so I run it in both.
