Tcw3/DFI OIL

I've just purchased a new boat with 150 hp OptiMax decided to top my oil tank up and on the last second and realised there was a different colour after further investigation realised it should be DFi oil not tcw3 I haven't run the engine yet ..... The question is will the oils mix or should I drain the whole system and start again 😁

Lot of mixed opinion on that topic i say it will mix and I have done that all is well but you would be better with a dfi oil there are many about now

Had nothing but a good experience with rock oil. MP3 ultra made for dfi 25 litres was around £115 delivered I think
