Tohatsu TLDI oil

What type of oil are all you TLDI owners using at present?
I'm looking to stock up for the new engine (115hp TLDI).
What would you recommend? Quicksilver DFi is available but expensive.
Rib Stuff are doing XD100 cheap, would this be ok in a TLDI?
So what are you using and how clean does it burn?

Ta.

Tohatsu branded oil is made by rock I believe, semi synthetic TCW3.

Thanks for the advice. Ordered some Tohatsu premium semi synthetic tc 3w from Extreme Marine today. Will give this a go and see how it runs.
