-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!)
