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.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
