Hi all,

Same question as last posting.

Does anyone know of any good deals on yamalube 2 stroke at the moment. Looking at bulk purchase. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Tony

I bet the branded stuff is expensive - get some Rock Oil instead - great stuff and great prices!!!

Thanks for the alternative advice. But I have got a warranty to think about as it's a new engine.

Regards,

Tony

Here we go again....

As long as the oil is the correct SPEC ie TCW-3 then it doesn't matter. Do you only put the makers oil in your car?

i know what you are saying about the spec but some of us have more modern high performance engines and warranties to worry about

if you think we believe you get 16-18mpg towing the codship with a landy 110 v8 then how do you expect us to believe that rock oil is the same as quicksilver dfi or other special oils

yes mr mercury, i know i didnt use your dfi oil, i used rock oil as mr codprawn said it would be absolutley fine....

He has a Yamaha not an Opti or an Etec. Funny how the racing boys who thrash their engines all the time seem to manage with other oils!!!

When I changed to a new bigger engine if it's a 2 stroke I will still use Rock Oil or another similar quality oil of the right spec. I would love to see an outboard maker invalidate my warrenty because I used an oil of the incorrect BRAND!!!

I won't even comment on the other matter.....

Only because he listens to people like you......

Do you buy proper Land Rover engine oil for your Discovery? I doubt it - it's the same analogy.

I do not have a Mercury Optimax owners pack handy but I am sure you do - does it TRUTHFULLY state in clear terms that if you use anything other than Mercury oil you will lose your warrenty? I really would like to know!!!

i dont think i told him to use yamaha oil...

its you trying to tell everyone else to use rock oil.......or something different to the typically expensive engine manufacturers branded oils

i personally am not in the slightest bit interested in using any other oil than the recommended optimax/dfi, others can use what ever they feel is good for them
the landy runs on what ever landrover put in it, same with the fiat and the beemer
