    Default Recommended Oil

    Ok. I am confused. Please chime in. Based on reading the forum..I am using rotella t diesel 15w40 as it seems to be highly recommended. My friend was told it would void warranty by our dealership. The dealership recommended 20w50 valvoline premium. This seems to totally ignore the manual.

    Question 1
    Does using RotellaT diesel 15w40 void my warranty?

    Question 2
    The valvoline is not 15w40 and it does not have a rating per the manual. Seems like this one would void the warranty!

    I would get the pennzoil if it was available but nobody has it. Not even the dealership. Seems like such a simple thing would not be so complicated.

    I think you're OK with the Rotella.

    Thanks but thinking I will be ok is not good. This is a simple thing that the manual and dealerships should be "crystal" clear on.

    Yeah, what would I know about the warranty anyway?

    Why don't you call SC customer service tomorrow?

    Your Indmar Owner's Manual has specifications that an oil should meet at a minimum. Get ANY oil that meets that minimum spec and you are fine. There are laws that protect you as long as you meet the minimums that the manufacturer sets.

    You can download the manual if you don't have it.

    I think I will. Thanks. I thought maybe a moomba or indmar rep would also chime in.

    No way, man! I wouldn't risk it. You'd hate to have an engine failure and then have them send the oil out of your motor off to their lab for testing and they find out you were using Shell, Castrol or, God forbid, Quaker State oil.

    Thanks. That's the way I see it but that's not what the dealership is telling me.
