Oh, I forgot to mention. If you want "quicksilver" on the jug then it is another 10 bucks. Also, and this is the 3rd P. off : a 2.5 US gal. jug is $29.95.
All Mercury manuals( both DFI and Carb) approve use of two stroke oil to standard TC-W3. The top line of the credit card receipt is the price of the oil. Your should just be able to make out the $13.99

Ahh but you must use proper Mercury oil made by Mercury engineers extrated from Mercury oil wells otherwise your engine will blow up and they won't honour the guarantee!!!

I understand where Codders is coming from. However, I am looking at my very expensive Mercury Factory Service Manual and in the Specifications section it says' "Recommend oil..........TC-W3" and no mention of any brand.
Hope this helps.
Tony

Keep digging. If you google Exol Lubricants they look like the real deal.

This DFI oil you use for Opti's is this suitable for an Evinrude DI outboard geared to use XD50?
