OIL RECOMMENDATION
Use SEARS ULTRA PREMIUM
Certified
TC-W3
2- Cycle Outboard Oil.
Sears Ultra Premium Certified TC-W3 Outboard
Oil is a high grade oil that provides increased lu-
brication and extra resistance to carbon buildup
when used with good or varying grades of gaso-
line.
Periodically consult with your Sears store to get the
latest gasoline and oil recommendations.
If Sears
2-Cycle
Outboard
Oil is not available,
substitute a 2
Cycle outboard manufacturer's oil or another brand of
2-Cycle outboard oil that is NMMA Certified TC-W3
or TC-WII.
The use of an inferior 2-Cycle oil can re-
duce engine durability. Damage from use of an inferi-
or oil may not be covered under the limited warranty.
