How much gear oil does a Mercruiser outdrive take?
The Alpha One holds about 2 quarts of Mercruiser Premium Gear Lube. More if you have a remote Drive Lube Reservoir. We like to get 3 quarts of Mercruiser Premium Gear Lube and we use part of the first quart to flush through the drive to clean out some of the older lube.
