Interesting Results

Have heard down the grapevine that the results will be very interesting, and possibly not might be expected.

When is the relevent issue of the magazine out?

the test was quite a eye opener

quite good to see the manafactures gages against a calibrated fuel flow gauge .( the same one on each boat )

if i did not need a engine urgent i would wait

some engines were far better in the high rev ranges

and others remarkable at medium reves

it will make a buying decision a bit easyier.you just need to decide if your a mid ranger or a full throtle guy

I'm lost!
So has this test been carried out, or not?? And if yes, by whom?!
I'm very close to getting an Opti 225 for my new 7.20m....

There may be a problem with merc 225 Optis - I keep on having to put fuel in it to keep it going.
