I have been in touch with the service mgr at ep barrus.
what do people think?
my view is i will continue to use Optimax/DFI oil in mine.
ok guys, i have the latest info for you
if you find blue green oil in your tank after a service or from new then this is quicksilver premium plus oil which is recommended by barrus/mercury as being suitable for the optis, the difference between this oil and dfi oil is apparently the dfi oil has a higher synthetic content and is slightly more expensive but both are fine to use in an opti as per the manual extract i posted below. I am getting ready to order up many many cases of dfi quicksilver oil so if you want me to share details of where you can order it up etc then pop me a pm, i have a consortium of 4 of us getting 2 cases each it seems there are 3x4litre bottles in a case and i am looking to pay approx 22.50 per 4l container.
the price is set to go up in august/sept i am told.
if you want an attractive price then you will need to order up in bulk as well.
