All I know is that I trust the older guard on correctcraftfan and have read there at least once from a trusted source not to use synthetic ATF. I don't need an excuse to spend less money. As far as the engine oil goes, synthetic is fine as long as you don't increase your service intervals as a result. I spend enough money getting the VR1 oil. I have no desire to spend double that amount to get synthetic VR1. My engines run extremely well on conventional oil.

But, it goes without saying, it's your boat to do with as you please.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That's what I like about this forum - we can agree to disagree and have a great discussion...
