    Default Royal purple or merc oil?

    Just naught a 2008 LSV from the original owner. Boat is in perfect shape, and the guy said he always ran royal purple motor oil. The manual says to run merc. Should I change or stick with the rp?
    Thanks

    I use the royal purple myself in my boat and it is a great product. My owners manual says penzoil but it is just a recomendation. I would stick with the royal purple it is a great oil and will most likely cost less than the merc oil.

    Another option is Rotella. It is a recommended oil for my engine.
