ETEC 90 Pontoon Remote Oil Tank

Can these engines be configured without the remote tank?

 

I bought a new 2014 90 pontoon model for my 1860 G3 and the dealer installed a remote oil tank in the fuel tank compartment but it is extremly tight and has to be removed to change the fuel filter. Sure would be nice to get rid of this tank and the wiring mess with it.

Any engine with an on-engine mounted oil tank does not require a remote oil tank.  The remote tank is an option meant to be a convenience to reduce intervals between adding oil.
