Buy the Yamaha gear oil pump-it's better quality than the Quicksilver pump and it should come with an adapter that'll fit the Mariner if it's a Merc based engine (mine did).

I'd be surprised if a litre bottle of Quicksilver premium gear oil wouldn't do both-though it's worth grabbing extra as it doesn't go 'off' if unopened.

Doubt it goes off if it is opened. Gear oil doesn't have too much in the way of aromatics that are going to flash off. Cap the bottle and stick it on the shelf.
