I wouldn't mix oils in the oil tank. Drain completely before changing to something else. I use 2-m or 2-w yamalube pre-mix no oil tank. Tcw-3 oil is probably fine but stick with something trustworthy. Thing about yamaha, polaris and sea-doo oil is it is a lot cleaner burning and synthetic blended I believe.

I just noticed that the 760 calls for any tcw-3 oil and the 1200 calls for ONLY YAMALUBE 2-w. I have only had them a couple weeks and have been puting 2-w in BOTH..


So Could I switch to any tcw-3 or should I just run that in the 760 and strictly yamalube 2-w in the 1200? I can find tcw-3 in quicksilver and penzoil for A LOT cheaper than the damn yamalube! and would like to switch to that in both!?

Thanks I ended up switching to walmart supertech tcw-3 in the 760 and it seems to be running A LOT better than it was on the yamalube! I am getting a d-plate to iliminate my cat converter and than I plan on running the supertech in the 1200 as well!?
