Synthetic Engine Oil

Synthetic Gasoline Engine Oil

SAE 30 Synthetic Engine Oil (SAE 10W-40 Synthetic Engine Oil) Volvo Penta has discontinued the straight 30 weight oil and now recommends SAE 10W-40 synthetic. Volvo Penta states that the straight 30 weight oil and the new 10W-40 multi-grade can be used together with no issues. For gas engines newer than 2002. For diesel engines, Volvo no longer offers synthetic 20 weight oil (40005015 (quart) and 21153635 (5 gallon).

Viscosity: SAE 15W-40
Grade: VDS-4, API C1-4, ACEA E5

Valvoline Non-Synthetic Engine and Sterndrive Oil

As Volvo Penta no longer has a non-synthetic 30-weight oil for Gasoline engines, we recommend purchasing a high quality 30-weight oil or equivalent. We carry an aftermarket Valvoline (NAPA) oil which is a heavy duty 30-weight mineral oil (non-synthetic). For gasoline engines earlier than year 2002.

For a list of Volvo Penta Chemical Products and their Aftermarket Equivalents, click here.

Marine Parts Express recommends that customers with older gas engines and outdrives NOT use the synthetic oil in the engines or drives because of overheating issues.

If you have been using synthetic oil with no problems, then we recommend you continue to do so and not switch back.

If your drive manual recommends a 75-90 weight non-synthetic we recommend using NAPA's 75210.

As Volvo Penta no longer has a non-synthetic 30 weight, we recommend purchasing a high quality 30 weight oil or equivalent. 

We carry an aftermarket Valvoline (NAPA) oil part number 75110 which is a Non-synthetic detergent 30 weight oil. (Replaces VDS-3 and 3855838, 1141690, 1141691, and 1141693)
