No,no difference at all.
Neither Rock Oil or Morris are cheap and nasty-they just aren't badged Quicksilver.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

Morris oils are excellent and they have a vast range.

Their synthetic gearbox oil is great for drive legs - despite what people think just cos it's not badged marine doesn't mean you can't use it - ask Morris technical dept - they are very helpful.
