    Using Sierra Full Synthetic Marine SAE 30 does anyone see any problem with that? My engine is a 2002 Volvo Penta 5.7 GXi-C only 314 hours has only run on SAE 30 full synthetic, not sure why I would change.

      30w is probably what was recommended for that engine at the time. I doubt that there is anything wrong with using it. Although one might argue that other variable viscosities would be just as good.

            If the engine was run on full syn 30 wt since new, then that's probably your best plan, as long as you can get the oil locally. Sierra stuff is very easy to get where I am locate and I've used their stuff for oil filters, fuel filters, certain gaskets etc.

              I haven't seen an engine damaged from the "wrong oil" for decades.
