opti owners...make sure you have enough oil to last you til late august

i dont want anyone caught out.........and not be able to use their boat

i have ordered up 33 gals of opti oil and it seems we have cleaned out barrus so they dont have any more until some time in august, apparently!

so make sure you have sufficient oil supplies to allow you to do your boating this summer without being possibly grounded due to any shortages.

also apparently it may go up by 23% from august due to the world oil prices.

this is information i am told but wanted to pass it on to save folks getting caught out.

if the price goes down in august i will be cussing!

yes i had reminded some folks on another thread but not mentioned here,

what in your/barrus view is the difference between premium plus and dfi/opti oil

i am told the dfi has a higher synthetic content so slightly better although premium plus will perform 100%

any views??

Why?

Why have you bought so much? - that's enough for almost 500 running hours!
