Do you guys run synthetic oil? I imagine it\'s a preference thing like your auto\'s but thought I would get the consensus.


Actually, I don\'t even know if it\'s cost effective since the manual said it doesn\'t allow for extended oil changes.


Also, do you start the engine without water hooked up to the impeller pick up to get it to operating temp or do you use water? I have always hooked up water on my other boat because of the rubber impeller, but I\'m not sure what these have.

I used Synthetic oil for a round in the engine, till I heard I heard that PCM saw no improvement when testing with synthetics.


I use synthetic tranny fluid.


Yes, you need water running and flowing into the intake with a fake-a-lake before you start it. Same rubber impellers in PCM.
