Yamalube? a Must?

Hey folks, just bought myself my first boat - a 5.4M Tornado with a Yamaha 90 on the back. Is it essential to use Yamalube? or is will any 2 stroke oil suffice? Im not fussed if i have to use it, just wondering!

Look forward to hours of ribbing fun - was up from Lochaline, along the Sound of Mull, to Tobermory at the weekend - great stuff!

Cheers guys

Simon

There's not many of us on here from the north east, nearly enough for a posse now.

Yamalube isn't required. Any correctly spec'd 2-stroke oil will be fine.

Which for any outboard is TC-W3 certified (nearly all are, but be wary of some aftermarket ones which claim to exceed the specifications but don't actually have the badge to prove it - its a little hologram shown on the bottle) Best of luck with the new boat too!

Well I have a small 3.8M orange/red boat. Could easily give you a tow about sometime but I dont think we'd have much pace.

Just to clarify Gotchiguy's post - "nearly all" marine 2 strokes are TC-W3 - the stuff you can buy in your local garage, for scooters, lawnmowers, chainsaws etc is unlikely to be (and is designed to run at the higher temperature of these air cooled engines).

Wow - there's 3 of us now - prepare for a flotilla to depart from Stoney harbour! Cheers for the help guys - £30 odd for a bottle of yamalube in Aberdeen, so could save myself quite a bit of cash!
