Lots of prior posts & opinions re: engine oils.

Previous thread -Yanmar - Mobil 1 Synthetic My post #30 has several attached oil report files as well as a link to another thread w/100+ posts & MANY opinions.

The problem I've found with almost all oil reports & recommendation is that they are auto / over the road truck related - some gas engine some diesel but few marine related.

The attached file - Best lubricants for yacht engines - is the best / most applicable for our interests as diesel boat owners... I've changed my opinion and preference re: oils after reading this one - I have little interest in trying to convince anyone to change their opinion but rather to offer up what I felt was a good and relevant study... draw your own conclusions.
