I am considering changing my current 2000 Mercury 75hp two stroke, (on my 5.4 metre ribtec) for a four stroke, purely because of the limiting factor of the amount of fuel it guzzles and the distance i wish to now go on it. It currently gets about 1.2miles per litre, however I am told i can expect to get double that on a more modern four stroke.
I have seen a 2004 Honda BF75 for sale for £1900 and it seems like it will be a straight swap with any luck. I was under the impression all the newish four strokes were fuel injected, but i am reading that this Honda may have carbs??
Can anyone shed any more light on this?
if it all checks out I am going to change to 4 stroke
