I have a Mercury 2002 Saltwater 150 and want to change the lower unit oil. Is there any difference in using quicksilver vs Mercury lower unit oil?

I thought Quicksliver was Mercury.

I always thought so too, but just wondered if one was better then the other.
QUICKSILVER IS OWNED BY MERCURY
There, I said it.... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

quiksilver is for non merc dealers like west marine - that being said, use the Merc/quiksilver HiPerf gear lube - best stuff in the biz for lower ends - even Yam fans uses it...

So quick silver DFI oil is the same thing as Opti Oil? Hope so Bass Pro is running a sale :grin:
