Buying a new motor was really very challenging for me because I knew that the one that I had in the past was one that I felt more comfortable with than anything else. They didn’t make a motor quite like this one anymore, so I would have to try something else. I wasn’t eager to make the switch even though my old outboard motor wasn’t working properly anymore.
Since I had to make the switch, I started to look at other Mercury outboards that I could only hope would run as well and as long as my old outboard motor had. I was able to find a motor that I felt good about using though I knew it could never replace the one I was getting rid of. I have been using Mercury Premium Plus oil just to give the motor everything that it needs to keep running for years to come.
