    I personally use the 5-30 Shell Rotella T Synthetic from Wal Mart with a OEM Honda oil filter.

    Shell Rotella T6 = 5-40....... Found it at Pep Boys for $19.99 / gallon. Wally world was out at the time.....

    I'm having a HELL of a time getting the oil OUT of the jetski....... I have the hand pump from harbor frieght....... I feel like the line keeps collapsing on itself causing no suction at all...... suggestions anyone?

    I use a Tempo/Mouller vaccuum type [6]-quart oil extractor and it works great. It was about $60 at West Marine.

    Never thought of lookin at West Marine.... I'll check that out tomorrow...... Does it have a tiny enough hose to make it down the rear dip stick tube? Thanks JRINJAX!

    Sure, it comes with an assortment of hoses, some very small that will even fit down the dipstick hole of a car engine.

    I use the harbor freight pump, I have found that the gray plastic sink or toilet supply lines from Home depot or lowes fit the hoses of the hand pump tightly and will fit down inside the rear oil tube. This has worked for me well in getting almost all the old oil out To get even more out I have added a 12 inch section of vacuum tubing onto the gray tube and can manage even a little more out of the rear with it.

    Got SICK of the Harbor Freight pump and went with the West Marine 6.9quart pump for $49.99 on sale.... best investment yet Worked like a charm, no constant pumping either.
