I bought Quicksilver once!! Fowled up my motor bad!! I run a Merc so the only oil I use is the Opti oil. You probably wouldn't be wrong to drain the old oil.

Ran merc 2 strokes( pro xs) for a lot of years , stick to name brand oil.
With my last outboard costing over 18k I will stick to manufactures oil.

One of the standards for TCW3 oil is that it is compatible with and will mix with other TCW3 oils.

There is difinently a difference in oils even if they have certification, years ago I ran some off brands and you could see it on the prop and the belly pan of the snowmobiles, aka black soot.
The oil may meet the standards but how clean does it burn?
Amsol at one time( maybe still) said it was best to run the exsisting oil down before changing to Amsol.
I would not get to worked up about changing brands on a 90hp motor.
A 90hp is not a HO motor.

The ONLY oil I run in my outboards (and everything else for that matter) is AMSoil. I use HP Injector from AMSoil in my 115 ETEC and in my 7.5 Evinrude kicker. Never had an issue.

if you suck the oil oil out of you bulk tank i would sugguest running mixed gas in tank, until you can verify that it is using oil again if you create a air bubble in your oil pickup linen

People still get caught up on the "Name Brand" oils. Check the manufacturer of the name brand oil, I guarantee it is made by one of the off brand companies. If it meets the TCW3 standard, it is good enough to run in your 2-stroke motors. I will agree, some do burn cleaner than others, and that is a difference, and you pay for that. But if you buy an off brand, smokeless oil, you are getting the same thing. AMSOIL is one of the best oils out there, in my opinion, but the oils like cheap Mystic from Fleet Farm work just as well. Check out how many snowmobile racing teams are using Mystic, cheap off brand oil.

As far as mixing, the biggest thing is that you don't want to mix regular oil with synthetic in your tank. If you are changing from regular to synthetic, or even semi-synthetic, run your tank as low as possible, or best case drain the last little bit out, then put in the new. If you are going to keep the same, mixing shouldn't be an issue, but I would still run it as low as possible, just in case.
