Minimum oil to use is a blend, no plain old oil in the SDI.
Full synth is a better oil than a blend.

I use nothing but the XPS semi synthetic in My SDI and its great oil. I had 5 gal of Torco synthetic oil and I was told by a couple of dealers that Doo says the semi synthetic is better for the SDI. They said it burns better than the full synthetic and is less likely to foul a plug. I don't know how true it is but I sold the Torco oil for what it cost me and I've used the semi ever since. You will save money with the semi and be using the oil BRP recomends at the same time, sounds like a no brainer to me.

I've heard full synthetic is actually worse for the sled, it's only required for constantly wide open riding, and when the motor isn't pounding it doesn't fully burn or something like that. We use semi-synthetic which is what our dealer recommends.

Blue Marble runs clean, I think less friction.

I have ran Blue Marble for 5 years. I change over to it after the factory oil is used up. I would not use anything else. Sorry you had a bad experience with it. My experience has been great. Have used it in '04 600 SDI for 5,000 miles now.
