I have a 2000 Merc 250 pro Xb on my Ranger 522vx. Anyone still running this motor? I'm pretty paranoid (probably read one too many horror stories on here haha). Anything I should be looking out for or doing special for this motor to keep it in top shape? I don't get to fish a lot because of my work schedule. Usually take it out about 5 times a year but plan to start going more often. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks for the help!
I have this same boat and motor, but mine is now a 522DVX, cause I installed a passenger console and I have the 250 XB, and I love it just bad on gas, probably the most dependable motor I have ever had
Yeah same here. It's been a solid motor but you're correct it is a gas drinker. I did the same thing and had a passenger console built and installed after I bought it several years back. So far for me it's been a great boat and motor combo.
