Running a Mercruiser I/O and use Mercury Hi-Performance gear lube(synthetic). Why,cause it displaces moisture and if a seal fails and allows water intrusion into the lower unit,the bearings and gears stay coated with oil till I make the repair. A little on the expensive side but beats another $900 for a full rebuild.
<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">In my Mercury Verado I use Quicksilver 4 stroke and in my Mercury Tracker series I use Quicksilver 2 stroke. Both Mercury and Quicksilver are recommended for Mercury motors.
For all of my inboards, gas and diesel, I use Chevron Delo 400 and have since diesel technician school in about 1970. We researched which oil met all engine manufacturers and MilSpecs. Chevron Delo 400 won. I have never had any oil related problems.
For my 2 strokes, I use West Marine synthetic - no problems.
For my towing vehicle, Chevy van, I use Red Line Racing synthetic in the engine and Red Line synthetic ATF in the transmission. 80,000 + miles and no problems. This was advice from a cousin who was tech director for GM's test facility in Arizona.

I thought general meant general. Maybe call it General Discussion on boats and fishing?
