When I first decided that I was going to purchase a Mercury brand motor for my boat, I looked into what kind of oil I should be getting for the boat. This is when I discovered that Mercury makes oil that is perfectly formulated for use by this sort of a boat motor. I wouldn’t have to worry about finding anything that would work since Mercury had it decided for me.
I was able to look at the different types of oil made by Mercury so that I could find the one that really fit specifically with the motor. I was able to look at the OptiMax oil which matched with the label on my boat motor. I really liked the look of this oil and when I read about it, it really seemed to be the obvious choice for my boat.
I never have used anything other than Mercury oil in my boat just because I know that this type of oil is made to be used in my type of an outboard motor. It just seems that using this type of oil is the right thing to do for my motor. I am always able to have my motor running in top shape as long as I have this particular type of oil around.
