I am and love it. I am running a 250HO on a 20 ft Ranger and without a doubt best motor I have ever ran. Not gonna say any faster than Mercury or Yamaha, but mid-range is stout, on plane is very strong. I have no cons have mine since oct of 16 in the shop once for some software upgrades or something. Easy on oil quiet etc. You in my neck of the woods come take a ride.

After the first ones came out and they fixed the bugs I haven't heard any complaints. Everybody that has one says the are awesome and you can't really beat the 10 year warranty. I've heard they are expensive though but what isnt

Yeah, I'm really interested in a Ranger and thinking about running the G2.

If I'm not mistaken the 3.5" screen comes standard and the 4.5" is optional. The larger screen displays more data as well.

I just bought a 2018 Ranger with a G2 so still waiting to get some years before I'm willing to talk about reliability but 10 years of warranty and from a local dealer is what sold me on trying one
it will take some getting use to , I always ran Mercurys or Yamahas the Evinrude G2 sounds completely different but it will scream and at idle it's the quietest 2 stroke I've ever heard run , starts first touch of the key even in below freezing weather
