Interestingly, there is an American oil supply company that are quite happy to take on the “if you don’t use Mercury oil, you’re warranty is void” claim in the States. They will even write to your service dealer with a threats of litigation if they take that stance……quoting the “Magnuson-Moss Act”.

While the Magnuson-Moss Act does not require manufacturers to provide a written warranty, it provides specific rules when one is provided. Among those provisions, FTC regulations state: (c) No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if (1) the warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and (2) the Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest. (15 U.S.C.2302(C))

If my memory serves me right, the EC took VW to court for failing (or threatening) to cover cars under warranty if they were serviced by a non-franchised garage. VW were fined several (hundred?) million €.

BMW were also at it at the same time. In some respects the Munich firm were worse because their cars could only be serviced if a garage had BMW diagnostic equipment. They later made that equipment available to independant dealers, but the price was extremely high. I believe it was later reduced, possibly to avoid similar sanctions to VW.

FIAT/Alfa Romeo have a similar system, but it is available at a much lower price. That's if my memory is correct.

Now, who am I? Where am I? What am I doing here? Who are all those people in white coats. NURSE!!!!

Huge differance in prices out there. Marinautic ( trade member on here) was best deal for me. From memory 20l was about £130. Worth supporting trade members on here !

I had in the past paid £48 for 4 L ! ( I had no choice it was that or not use the boat that day ! )
