Changing oil on an inboard can be expensive, and if you are doing it
yourself – a real hassle! Lubricheck can tell you if the change is needed.
Most boats are operated relatively few hours per year. (Sorry to bring that
up!) Popular advice recommends changing the oil at least once a year,
primarily because of the possibility of water condensing or leaking inside
the engine. However, this is not always the case. Lubricheck will react to
as few as 20 drops of water per quart of oil. Instantly know if the oil is
contaminated and needs a change.
An hour meter is a poor indicator of how hard your boat has been working all
summer. Heavy use, or lots of water-skiing and tubing can age oil fast,
while trolling and idling at dock side, not so much! Lubricheck will alert
you if it is time for a change, based on actual oil condition!
