Hey guys, need some advice on something here i bought a 79 9.9 johnson outboard last year and i love it to death i'll never go back to mercurys again lol any way i got a gallon jug of the omc oil when i got it but it was 45 bucks! i noticed pennzoil 2 cycle is only 17 at wally world i was wondering if anyone else uses it and is it good?
I use premium plus quicksilver 2 stroke in my mercury 9.9. I probably pay too much....35 to 40 bucks a gallon. Lol. But if it saves my motor a year or two its worth it. There are many things in life.....most things......that you get what you pay for. Just my opinion.
In 10 years i might save enough on cheaper oil to buy a new one though.

Thing of it is theres only a handfull of manufactuers alot of this oil is the same stuff with a different label just like gasoline Ive pulled Sunoco gas from Marathon ,Valero from Sunoco ,BP from from Marathon its just a label when we had Citgo's pulled it from Shell so why pay twice as much for a name most manufactuers has an oil for there product which aint nothing but a label with a higher cost as long as its got a a well known name on it I d use it but wouldnt use like Warrens and some of the off names which I believe is recycled oil
