    The oil shelves are Wal-Mart near me were pretty empty when I stopped by this weekend. Only 1 jug of 15W-40 left.

        People are scared there is going to be an oil shortage and are stocking up. My dad works with heavy equipment, and he was told by the oil distributors that they should order all the oil they need for the year (this was at the beginning of 2020).

        I wrote it off at the time, but then I went to go change the oil in my truck and had a hard time finding it.

          The last several years I have found the lowest price for Rotella at Home Depot.

            I would have no issues winterizing a boat with whatever oil product I could find. Heck if you were really hard up you could fill the crankcase with kerosene and drain that come spring if you had to.

                I'm not saying there's seven months we can't go in the water but it's with our schedule that we have to bring it in a bit early. It's a couple of hours up there so have to do it when we can.

                I don't want hot water! I want it clean, clear, and cool!

                Still don't understand this thread. Most guys change oil in the fall, not spring. Nice to get the contaminants out and fresh oil on the internals for storage. No special oil though.

                  I restore old engines you bring me one with a milkshake I fill it to the brim with kerosene. when I get to it I dump that and add oil. Works great.

                  You sink a snowmobile I fill w kerosene again works great displaces water. Drain and fire up works great.

                    I’ll usually fog a 2 stroke or add oil and prime a 4

                        The thread is about stock on shelves at stores.

                              It's amazing how fast these threads can go off track. One word or suggestion can send them into a totally different topic.

                                TeamTalk is still laser focused with relevant content and answers compared to the various MC Facebook groups. I'm always amazed by some of the FB questions/answers and pictures......bring on the popcorn LOL.
