I have had 2 since 2005. First was 225 HO ETEC ran over 800 documented hours before had a problem with oil system and dropped 2 cylinders. I was so impressed with power, quietness and fuel and oil use that I replaced it with 250 HO ETEC last year and I am more impressed with the power, quietness and fuel and oil usage. I had expected a dramatic increase in oil and fuel usage, so far just not happening. This is not the G2. I do have a reputable marine dealer that does all my maintenance it is Rockwall Marine.
FISH NOW NOT WORKING ANYMORE
