oh my god no, would suggest you use the quicksilver gearoil as is a marine environment oil and i beleive the oils are usually a bit friendlier if spilt but not sure

ep 90 stinks wheras the quicksilver does not really smell

You should use the Quicksilver High Performance gear oil on the that engine.
