Dave, I'd call your local MTU rep to be sure, but Chevron (and others, certainly) offers an applications brochure that includes MTU high-speed (>1000rpm) marine diesels.

That is why I asked if he meant outboards or not. :-)
Amsoil makes a synthetic that works well in 2 stroke diesels. It's there "Synthetic 10W-30/SAE 30 Heavy Duty Diesel Oil (ACD)"
