"September 29, 2006
Evinrude E-TEC outboards that are 90-horsepower and below
are the first two-stroke engines to receive registration by the
Bodensee-Schiffahrts-Ordnung Commission, also known as
BSO (Lake Constance Nautical Regulations), for use on
Lake Constance, the pristine waters bordered by Germany,
Switzerland and Austria."

Obviously it's clean burned within the engine, unlike all that waste sump oil that "clean" 4 strokes have to get rid of every 50 hours or so

It's much worse than that. Why do they have to dip their 'orrible sumps? To top 'em up is why! And where did the oil go I wonder...

I reckon this would equate to about 20 litres over 50 hours of normal use.

A lot more than a 4 stroke's sump oil I would think. I've used two 4L cans already in maybe 10-12 hours (though that is 1. the running in period 2. set to XD50 not XD100 as I haven't changed it yet and 3. including filling the oil tank from empty so I've probably only used 1 can in reality)

Depends on usage & engine size, V6 range is 150-300hp. If set to XD100, about 10-12litres. This however is burned within the engine & is exhausted as carbon. No raw oil leaves the engine. At idle, virtually no oil is used.
