Volvo transmission Fluid
 
I was looking to change out my transmission fluid on my Vovo Penta 2003. The 75W/140 oil only comes in a 5 qt container for $238.00.
Do I really need to use the Volvo oil and if so does this oil have shelf life?

No, you don't absolutely need to use the Volvo oil.. but having been though this myself not long ago it's certainly less hassle:

Head down to your nearest Volvo marine dealer. They'll sell you however much you want from a big drum out the back (over here it's $7 per litre..) :)
