When I started to use a motor on the back of my boat, I was very confused about all of the different types of oil that were available for use in an outboard motor. Some of these oils were ones that were mixed with the fuel for the engine to consume. Others were actually put in a specific compartment that would make it so that they would be distributed to the engine from there.
I started to look at some different types of oil and compared how these were meant to work to what my engine was capable of. I was able to easily pick the right type of oil to use, just by referring to the owner’s manual that came with the outboard motor. I decided to buy premium outboard oil because I wanted to make sure that I was filling the boat with oil that I could really trust.
