    Outboard 4-cycle oil

    I have a Yamaha T-60 outboard 4-cycle and was able to get Pennzoil 10w-30 marine premium outboard oil locally until this year, it's no where to be found. Buying online is very expensive at ~ $15 per qt plus shipping. Yamalube marine is also expensive and hard to get locally. The manual recommends Yamalube 4m fc-w but also states "or 4-stroke motor oil with a combination of the following SAE and API oil classification: Engine oil type SAE:10W-30 or 10W-40. Engine oil grade API: SE, SF, SG, SH, SJ, SL.

    So do I need oil classified as "Marine oil"?

      Yes there is a difference, marine oil is engineered to endure high rpm for extended periods of time.

        Thanks for the replies. I did get the Pennzoil marine outboard oil at Walmart but they stopped carrying it. Walmart online has the high prices and no free shipping, even to the store. I guess I will do to the local marine store and pay the high prices on Yamalube.
