It is faster in a bravo I have run it for years. People say it causes failure but I have had great luck with it. That is a old racers secret

I am not sure I would risk a drive using it in a Bravo. The Torco MTF oil (The spec for Mercury Number Six dry sump oil) is very thin almost like water. Mercury gear lube is a much heavier weight oil.
If want to get rid of the oil I will buy it from you.
