Get a 4 Stroke.

Seriously when I ran a two stroke I found the addition of buying 2 stroke oil expensive. And it sounds especially expensive for you Opti boys. Their is one consolation those Opti's sound good.

guys

you can quite happily use quicksilver premium plus 2 stroke oil in your optis, you will find dealers put it in and it is listed in the manual

dfi is better but it will work just fine with premium plus, it is cheaper as well!
