Since I change the oil myself ONCE a year no matter what oil I may have used, I don't believe it is costing me any extra time or waste. And the old oil goes into the marina oil recycle tank that is used to heat the place anyway.

I don't know when oil became "obsolete", but based on my oil analysis it is doing a great job!

Synthetic oil has been around way longer than my engine, but just old obsolete oil is what the manufacturer says to use. But if it makes you feel good I'm all for you using it in yours.
Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
