I haven't had a 2 stroke outboard in ages, but I used to mix brands in my old outboard. And I still mix different TCW3 brands in lawn equipment and I've never had an issue. They all seem to play fine together.

Thanks for that. Personally wouldn't mid blowing my lawnmower up ( out today for the first time this year ) but I'd be gutted if my outboards failed.....

Cheers for all the info... Interesting data sheet....
Up to and exceeding 70hp.
I dont know. Is it a case of you get what you pay for or is it just a good price.
And should I be looking at the sythetic stuff or am I being too picky for a 15 yr old engine that probably doesn't care!
Hi Steve! I'll keep ya posted!
Cheers t'yall

I use Morris Aquamax. It's comparable to Quicksilver in smell, smoke and oiling rates at tickover on the Yam 85, but very cheap for a 25 litre drum in comparison.
