Owners in CT where you get oil
I have a 94' 750SL and the place where I used to get my Polaris Gold Oil was at R.E.R in Monroe. Well they no longer carry it. So I was wondering where you guys in CT buy your oil or where you order if from online.
Is there another type of oil I can use instead of the Polaris Gold?

Amsoil works well preferred customers get a nice discount too, and it;s delivered to your door. I run this in my sl http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/hpi.aspx?zo=1520362

is that all you guys use is polaris or amsoil? I take it the standard TCW3 oil is junk? Penzoil and whatnot that I use in my boat?

Seriously, in that ski, any brand name oil will be fine. IMO, that $30/gal Polaris oil is a rip off. I'm one of the few oddballs around here that is not an Amsoil fan, so I don't use it...but you could if you wanted. The HP Injector would be fine. I use straight mineral oil in mine...I pay $10/gal.

I thought the polaris oil and the amsoil had additional addatives the the standard dino oil didn't. I don't want to blow the thing up not having the right oil in there.

Nut is right. As long as the oil meets the manufacturers requirements, in this case tcw-3, it is safe to run. some of the advantages of synthetics are:
usually less smoke, the potential to run leaner depending on the oil, higher heat resistance, less plug fouling, ect.
it's a personal preference thing. i only suggested amsoil because you mentioned it.
