ive just drained the oil out of the leg on the outboard and need to know if i can fill it with EP80W-90 gearbox oil i have for my old car.

it looks and smells like the oil out the leg and my ep80 oil are the same. im hoping to use it on saturday for a spin around the estuary

regards nck

You don't acually tell us what outboard it is, perhaps you have previously!

Most outboard gearboxes use EP90. Not so sure about the 80W-90 though. Use it go for your trip on Saturday and change it if anyone says stick to straight EP90.
