Default Outboard guys: 2 cycle oil

What is everyone using and why. I know a lot of people say the Merc stuff smokes too much. Also what is the cheapest place to purchase whatever you are using. I heard getting an amsoil dealership is cheap and easy and saves a bunch of money. Also didn't know about redline? Thanks for the input.

There is ONE and ONLY one answer to this question. AMSOIL SERIES 2000 RACING OIL! It is the BEST there is and the customer service at AMSOIL is FAR AND ABOVE any other I have seen. Get yourself a dealer number and order away. They have so many OUTSTANDING products you will be blown away.

Pennzoil 100% synthetic.
Available at Wal-Mart for $19. per gallon.

Klotz is good stuff too.

Is Amsoil a religion or an oil? J/K

My big boat motors are stock so I put any TCW3 oil that is on sale in there. For the new V8's will probably use the Pennsoil or Amsoil Synthetic-burns cleaner, less scuffing.
