    Default Volvo Penta 280 Duoprop oil type?

    What is the best type of oil for the 280 duo prop?
    should i use gear oil or the same oil as engine?
    the mannual says to use same as engine, but the manual is old and would like to know what someone with experience has to say.


    PS. i went to the one volvo penta dealer we have and asked the same questions. They told me my engine is obsolete and i should buy a new d4 for 32k then brushed me off lol
