My SHO has 648 hours on it and is still making oil. It had about 1.5 inches above the full line on the last 100 hour maintenance. For SHO owners what’s the amount of hours your quit doing this? Does a lot of idling cause this?
I’ve heard bad thermostats will cause this. Have any of you had this problem? All my reading are good and still runs very well.

Too much idle time . If you idle a bunch you need to run some WOT also. If you idle and plow around they will make oil, and it is not oil. It is fuel.

Thanks. That’s what I was thinking. I do idle slot plus my home lake is like 2200 water surface acres. So it takes about 10 minutes to run from one end to the other, if that long.

Need to change your oil way more often.
