    Question Oil Recommendations - Ficht DI

    Hey guys, maybe this information is floating around on this site, if so, I apologize, I might have done a bit less than normal amount of digging.

    This past weekend I took my ski to the beach for the first time. Had a blast, 5-10ft seas and absolutely ripping wind with no rain.
    I had attempted to go to my Polaris dealer on Friday to pickup the usual ves synthetic gold. To my disappointment they were closed for the holiday.
    I then drove to the next best thing - power sports dealer who sells Yamaha, Honda, and Seadoo
    While there i picked up 2 quarts of AMS oil and a gallon of Yamalube. Over the weekend i used the rest of my gallon of VES gold and the AMS oil but never had to touch the Yamaha stuff.
    I used the AMS oil because they specifically mentioned Ficht engine safe on the packaging and that seemed SAFE to me.
    I guess my question is besides the VES Gold, what do you use or recommend?
    They are all basically the same price and I dont want to argue price as we could only possibly be disputing a maximum of 15$/gallon. Instead i would like to know about consistency, problems known with certain types, smell (i noticed a HUGE difference in smell between the AMS and the VES Gold).
    As i said above i never touched the Yamalube so please let me know if you recommend against it. Yamalube and the AMS brandish a TC-W3 logo

    thanks boys, hope you had a good 4th!!

    I would not be switching between different oils. Get one and stick with it.

    Here is what I use. I get at least one case at a time and always have plenty on hand. There is nothing better out there in my opinion especially for the price.
