When we made the decision to switch to a higher powered engine for our boat, I wasn’t expecting how complicated it would turn out to be. There is a much different way to take care of an engine that has more power than that of a lower quality alternatives. After years of owning pretty standard engineers, I was at a bit of a loss when it came to a DFI engine.
I decided to talk to my friend who is a mechanic. He told me I was completely over thinking it. At the end of the day, the most important thing was to find the right mercury 2 cycle oil that would help the engine last longer. Anything else was just about the same as any other engine I had owned throughout the years.
