Changing 2 stoke outboard oil from Quicksiler Premium plus to Quicksilver DFI? is this safe???
Just after some advice please. Ive always used Quicksilver Premium Plus in my Optimax 115 2 stroke. When I recently had it serviced, I was told by the mechanic that I should be using Quicksilver DFI in it. I bought a couple of bottles and have now run out of the Premium Plus, but am pretty hesitant to start running the DFI in it. I obviously asked the mechanic if changing it over would be OK, and he seemed pretty positive it wouldnt, but also a bit non-commital about it...
Can anyone tell me if changing the oil types (they both seem very similar, both ae the same brand, both and TC-W3 and if I am correct, both are synthetic?) will do any damage?
What is the actual difference between the two oils? (besides the colour- the Premium is green and the DFI is bronze).
Will changing over have any bad effect on the motor?
Ive mixed a bit of each of the oils in a container and let them sit for a couple of hours= there doesnt seem to be any seperation/ gelling, but Im still unsure...
Any help would be greatly appreciated- Ive very paranoid about this and just dont want to make an expensive mistake. Ive got a big trip planned on friday and dont want things to go wrong!
Thanks as always!
