    Quick oil question

    Hi guys I know it's late and appologize in advance. I will be traveling tomorrow morning and taking my jetski, I will not have access to any Seadoo dealers only Walmart, Autozone. I need to know if I can use regular automotive oil in my Seadoo? Castrol 10w40? Don't know much about jetskis but learning. Also any thoughts for the oil filter?

    Thank you all so much.

    Buy the 10w-40 motorcycle oil. I assume you have a supercharger? You also have to suck the old oil out of the dip stick.

    When it comes to Seadoo your best bet is to use what Seadoo recomends, buy it online, If its the 951 motor absolutly only use Seadoo oil

    You don't need to buy seadoo brand oil.
    Seadoo don't make it Castrol oil does and puts seadoos label.

    Castrol gave the public a HINT with there Castrol GTX oil.

    this thread needs more info.
    what year ski do you have?
    is it a 4- tec engine?
    is it supercharged well no it's a gti.
    it is always best to use the seadoo semi-synthetic oil in all 4-tec engines castrol does not any oil available to the public which is formulated the same and you risk engine damage running anything else jmho......
