2 stroke oil

Hi guys

I have just bought a boat with a 300xs on I have been reading up on the oil to use and Mercury now say to use Mercury racing 2 stroke oil over the premium plus or the optimax stuff

Any one know where I can get this in the UK or do people recommend anything else?

Thanks
Si

Oil, Battery, Spark Plugs, Fuel and Fuel Additive Recommendations Updated 4/14/15

Please consult your owner's manual, or http://www.mercurymarine.com for the BEST recommendations on each of these items!

This list will be updated as additional information is requested- check it regularly for the most current information!
from DON WEDD Master MERCURY Technician on BBC forum
Oil:
-These are the "top recommendations". Refer to your owner's manual for other oil specifications!
-ALL EFI/CARB 2.4/2.5/3.0L (2-stroke) Engines: Mercury or Quicksilver Premium PLUS
-All STANDARD Optimax (75-250): Mercury or Quicksilver DFI/Optimax Oil
-ALL ProXS Models: Optimax/DFI Oil. Mercury or Quicksilver Premium PLUS is acceptable, but Optimax/DFI oil is RECOMMENDED due to a better additive package to help combat carbon deposits.
-ALL Racing/XS Models: Mercury RACING 2-stroke oil, or PREMIUM PLUS

- (Note..... there was some conflicting information on Merc's Website- follow this recommendation for the latest information as it's released!)
