Yes there are SUVs on the water in the form of 2 stroke engines. This new fourstroke 40 hp engine by Suzuki is so fuel efficent and clean burning, I don't know why there is another 2 stroke manufactured in the industry.
In the normal fishing trips as we have done with the new one, time and miles of the area we normally fish in, compared to the older 2 stroke, we have burned approx. 3 gallons of pure gas compared to approx. 12 to 14 gallons of mixed oil and gas of the past experience.
It is so quiet and has no smell or residue trailing behind you when idling of slow running.
There are deals out there, in the winter season especially of left over engines and surplus ones from dealers going out of business, that you can save a load and most will still come with new and exptended warranties.
Help save the inland waters. Do your part NOW!! Opps, I sound like an enviromentalist now.
