Volvo Penta VDS oil is specially formulated, and of such high quality, that it is specified in many Saildrive's and gearboxes. Volvo Penta VDS oil is also competitively priced to support owners in using genuine parts and oils. VDS-3, VDS-4 and VDS-4.5 are basically the same oil and can be mixed. Please note, VDS-4 and VDS-4.5 is not generally better than VDS-3 and is designed with additives for DPF engines.
Many problems that we have seen over the years have been caused by using sub-standard patent parts. Please note: genuine Volvo Penta parts fitted by us or other main dealers have a 2-year guarantee.
