I think I am going to switch to the Amsoil MCF from my Motul 300V...I am just wondering if on my next oil change I just start using the Amsoil or do I have to flush the other oil out?

No need to flush. Just use it.

I wouldn't use Yamalube at all, but I said that already.

If you want a top quality oil that's truly suited to the application, use either Amsoil MCF (or MCV) or use Mobil 1 MX4T.

If you want a serviceable, less expensive oil that will do the job for you if change it a bit more often, go with Rotella T 15w-40.

There are, of course, any number of other opinions.

Hey Gray, what do you think about the Rotella Synthetic 5w-40?
