My point is European companies aren't allowed to rip people off by saying you can only use their own make of oil. The Yanks get away with it and people fall for it every time.
Don't tell me an engine oil that is good enough for a Ferrari or Honda engine at over 8,000rpm isn't good enough for a 4 stroke outboard.
And whatever Mercury may say there is no way they could invalidate the warrenty on an EU engine if you don't use their own oil - the fines wouldn't be worth it!!!
