Hey forum, I have a 2007, 200HP Yamaha that I’ve been using the name brand 2-stroke oil on since I got it years ago. At the time I just figured it would be safe to use their yamalube, but the stuff is expensive. Is there a suitable alternative that isn’t, what, like $40 a gallon? Are there any places around Fork that might sell bulk oil?

Thanks

Oil is oil so if you can find a dealer that has Spring Sales then you can usually get Bulk Oil at a much lower price.

If you Google search for Bulk Oil Distributors near you you will get several.

I would call them and ask about it and see what they can sell you some for. cheers
