When I first purchased a Mercury Optimax outboard, I was attracted to this type of outboard because of its efficiency and all over performance. I knew that an outboard like this would be perfect for my boat. I decided to buy one used rather than buying a brand new one just to cut down on the cost of the motor.
I ended up looking at many different ones before finding one that I would be able to buy and bring home right away. Before I even bought an Optimax motor, I ended up buying some Optimax oil that I would be able to use in the motor all of the time. I was glad to be able to have this oil since I knew that it was a superior type that would help keep my motor running smoothly.
