Don't know what it is but it appears to be less than $10 for what amounts to a lifetime supply.
Lubricating Grease - Volvo Penta 828250 - volvopentastore.com
The instructions are surprising in that they recommend adding a cubic cm. of grease every 200 hours and REPLACEMENT at 500 hrs.

That being said, I know of many on Bene's & Jeanneaus more than 10 years old that have never been touched by human hands.
