The Outboard Engine Oil Myth
Many believe to stay within their outboard engine warranty they must run a specific oil.
Mark Davis from BigWater Adventures wants you to know “The myth has been busted“.
Many believe (or told) they have to run specific oil that is made by the same company that built the outboard. The truth is that using another brand of oil is fine as long as it sticks to the fine print listed in the warranties where it says that oil “must meet or exceed standards”. These products will not void any warranties and have the quality required to keep your engine safe.
Lucas Oil meets or exceeds all motor manufactures recommendations. Both 2-stroke and 4-stroke oils are formulated for the words top powertrains. It includes Lucas exclusive additive package made from a virgin stock. Warranty says for ALL engines.
One of the best ways to ensure your outboard keeps running like new is to take care of it. Regular maintenance, treating your fuel for ethanol and running the best oil available can pay dividends for performance. The common myth in the marine industry is that you have to use oil produced by the manufacturer or you will void the warranty. That is not the case, and Lucas Oil marine oils will meet and exceed all requirements.
It’s made in the USA. It’s sold to the world.
