mercury high performance

3 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me if I can use this high performance lower gear lube in my 115 96 mariner motor? How about a 25 hr mercury motor? I have always used the standard stuff but someone had a jug of the high performance on sale. Obviously I would be draining out the old oil and adding the new stuff.

What brand and type is it ? If you are uncertain, then keep the one you have, the $ 5.00 saved won't go very far if you wreck your lower unit.

I actually assume it would be fine but you make the judgement.

Yes you can use it just don't mix it with standard gear lube. Here's the info from the Mercury website.

High Performance Gear Lube:

Engineered to provide maximum protection for sterndrive and outboard lower units.

Exclusive formula is engineered to provide extended gear life in extreme conditions including high-speed and high-horsepower applications.

Extensively tested to provide excellent protection against corrosion and excessive wear.

Specifically formulated to help prevent failures due to water entering the gear housing.

Extreme pressure synthetic additives protect gears from metal to metal contact.

Since no industry-wide standards exist concerning marine gear oils, it is essential to use products such as Mercury

High-Performance Gear Lube which has been specifically designed and tested for marine applications.

DO NOT mix with Mercury Premium Gear Lube.

Engineered to provide maximum protection for sterndrive and outboard lower units.

Provides warranty protection for all Mercury MerCruiser sterndrive and Mercury, Mariner and Force outboard lower units.
