I have a Merc.150 OptiMax (2011). It is said this engine requires at least 1000 cca or 1000mca. to start it. it's just the way these engines are made!!
I'm shopping around for a single battery replacement. I don't need/want a RED,BLUE,or YELLOW top battery. I'm sure the battery I have now is a Continental Brand which does start it. The DEKA Marine Master battery at Lowes in TC won't be available for p/u until 24OCT. That doesn't work for me. O'Reilly's has a battery (CAR) that may work for $150. The battery at Lowes is $100 but with my military discount..it would be $90 w/ exchange. I like that price range !!
So...What works for you if you have a Merc 150 Opti? Do you use a CAR battery or a hopped up BLUE TOP ?
