2 stroke oils

Any one used these oils or have any thoughts on them?

there doesn't seem to be many replies blakeys7, i think this might be saying something, though someone did say if it was tc-w3 it should be ok. the total neptuna sport looks like its worth a shot, i have used that before in a ( 2001 )mariner 50hp 2stroke and ran good.

In truth it is quite possible for a small supplier to sell a quality oil at a low price... by not spending a fortune on sponsoring F1 racing and massive international advertising.

Problem is we rely on our OBs to get us home safely from sea and how do we judge a small almost unknown name... so I never chance it on oils and use maker's own suppliers.
