Outboard Oil

I have a Johnson 40 HP Super Sea Horse I just bought. The engine label says to use SAE 30 motor oil mixed in the gas. Does this mean I can use plain 30 wt oil like I put in a car, or do I have to use outboard motor oil.

Thanks,

Sherm

The oil you put in your car is 10W30. I would not use that.

30 wt Oil

30 wt oil is available, that is what i'm talking about. It's a buck a quart vs 6 bucks for outboard oil.

Outboard oil

You can use that oil. It is C $2.69 a litre here.

I found 2 cycle oil at $4.10 fo 500 ml at NAPA , whereas Esso sold 1 litre at that price.

Since the price of fuel is today C $.939 per litre (times 4.5 for a gallon),
marine recreation is not cheap!

You may get 5 miles per gallon from that motor?
