    Default 2002 225 mercury 225 optimax oil question

    I have aA with twin 2002 225 mercury OptiMaxs I bought it Iím December I never had an optimax before . I was told that I have to run the special OptiMax oil in it which I have been using but it is costing so much money that I can use my boat as much as I want to. I was wondering if anybody had an opinion on if I can use Pennzoil premium ? Or is it a bad idea itís about half the price per gallon.

    Use the Quicksilver DFI oil only.
