    It depends what you are putting it in. I use it in a Yamaha outboard, have since day 1. I also used it in a 97 gp 760. No problems. Check your engine requirements.

    I used this stuff for years in my ski's with no oil-related problems. It burns pretty clean and is cheap.

    Do not use it in a power valve engine,I did two last year for hyper,his boats had only thirty hours on them and the power valves were completely gummed up,the person he got the boats from was running supertech in it.

    I disagree with that as we used it all the time in GP's that were rentals with no problems. Also the 3 times my powervales were cleaned they were very clean, not much sludge at all.

    Re: how bad is supertech oil?

    What other factor would you like me to attribute the totally screwed up power valves with thirty hour to?There was no doubt they had been running Supertech in these boats ,it was two boats not just one ,both sets of power valves were equally gunked up,Supertech oil was found in the storage locker on the trailer and it was about half full.Now I am no rocket scientist but I can add things up pretty well.It is like the old fram commercials,you can pay me now or pay me later.One more tidbit of info,it is not recommended to run non synthetic oil in a power valve engine ,whys that you ask? It gunks up the power valves,if you want to run it go ahead ,I make my living off of customers who do stuff like this and me and my bank would like to thank you.

    Re: how bad is supertech oil?

    First of all, where does it sat that a full synthetic oil is recommended in the powervalve engines? I am saying that I have ran it in my personal GP (for 6 years) and used it 100's of hours in the GP's we had as rentals for 100's of trouble free hours. Second, Wal-Mart does not have their own refinery so someone makes the oil for them and they "private label" it.

    Since you have so many post's in so little time I am sure you know everything. So I expect a quick witty reply within a matter of minutes.

    Re: how bad is supertech oil?

    I have run super tech in all my sea doo and snowmobiles. THe only machine that i dont run it in is my race one, because it does gum up the power valves very fast and a lot compared to intimidator by amsoil. So i would say if you dont mind cleanin your vlaves no big deal. Id rather clean my vlves every 30 or so hours then spend 20 to 30 bucks a gallon just to free ride.
    Were all here for a good time, not a long time!

    Well if you are jealous of my large number of posts why didn't you just say so.If you want to run Wilmar special oil in your ski thats fine,don't recommend that everyone else do so though,after all when they have problems with it you will surely be nowhere around and the repair bills will be coming out of their checking account not yours.Funny thing about advice on the internet ,the good advice and the bad advice are the same price.
