I retract what I said. I use Mercury, not Evinrude. I can get "bulk" from Performance Marine. By "bulk" I mean I purchase a gallon from their bulk tank. It's a little cheaper than just buying a new gallon each time. I don't use my boat enough to need that purchase that much oil though. :-/

How much do they charge for the Merc synthetic bulk?  I think I bought it for 28 at Tempe when they were still around maybe 3 years ago.

Steve, I think I pay $26 per gallon, I have the mercury two gallon jug that I take in. You might call out there and talk to Sue but they fill the jug out of a 55 gallon barrel.

my next boat will have a 4 stroke, will go mercury, price for PM on a 4 stroke is about the same as the oil you will use in an opti, and the new 4 stroke only weigh about 25lbs heavier than the 2 stroke opti and mercury makes their own now with good results.

Brent at performance will tell you to go with the (company made oil) they know what is needed he also says most two strokes don't get cold enough here in AZ to thicken up the oil where it will not pull the oil up for use
