Title is really my question. Anybody know who blends the oil for West Marine? We changed out the oil before winterizing using the West Marine oil and next season I will be able to give a better "butt dyno" review but I was curious.

look on the bottom of the jug. Many oils will have WPP on the bottom.

I think was Kinpak which blends for Star Brite, I spoke to a V.P. of the company and he said that most of their Base oil is from Exxon/Mobil. I sure the additives are from a major chem mfg. It seems like good stuff.

Interesting. It seemed to run pretty nice versus the Rotella 40w. Most likely because we went through and cleaned up filters and the carb. Either way the engine didn't blow up and it was reasonably cheap for a boat oil change. Win/win
