Now that the summer season is over and I’ve made plans to winterize my boat, I’m turning my attention to winter. While the area that I live in has fantastic summers, we also get quite a bit of snow. Like most people in my neighborhood, I own a snowmobile for winter recreation.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that I’m pretty particular about the oil I use. I always conduct a paper test on snowmobile oil. I simply place a drop of the oil from the engine on a sheet of paper and then put a drop of oil from a new bottle next to it. I compare the two dots and look for black coloration in the oil engine oil. If the old oil has too much grit and color in it, then I know it’s time to change the oil.
