      There are a number of alternatives for BRP Premium Blend. First, however, even though most BRP/Evinrude dealers are not stocking Premium Blend (not much demand), BRP still sells it. If your dealer doesn't have it and you prefer to use Premium Blend, have him order it for you.

      Next on the list, is right here at iboats. You can buy Sierra brand Type C gear oil at a competitive price.

      NAPA stores also have a Type C gear oil. It is priced a bit lower than iboats, but you have to buy it in 12 quart cases, so the savings really isn't a benefit.

      Some ATFs will also work. Dexron (not Dextron) II and III ATFs will work, as will Mercon ATFs. Do not
