Reading all this its seems open and hence the reason you need to look at your factors.

Riva interest about resale which i had not figured

Seems like there are 4 good engines and it will depend on what you use them for, e.g i dont do enought hrs to worry too much about fuel, which someone else might.

I think it was good because we had 4 engines, the same HP. Riva i dont suppose there is anyway of doing running reports on these boats, e.g after 6 month, 1 year .... to see what it has really cost

The Suzuki max rpm is 6100 not 8000+ as stated in the review. Somebody obviously doesn't know their arse from their elbow.

Yup.... I'm with Mr Manning on this one...... My Suzuki 250 must be deffective as well as Ian's? Do ya reckon it's a warranty claim ? I'll just e-mail that nice Richard at Suzuki and tell him I'm using twice us much fuel as I should be.... and if he doesn't give me a new motor..I'll come round and give him a kick up the elbow......

Just my simple observation. I have run the 250 Hp Suzuki for just about 2 years, and on my engine the rev limiter kicks in just around 6000 RPM. Must be a miss print

On my boat I use around 30 LPH at 4000 RPM and around 65 LPH at 6000 RPM, measured by floscan

Nothing scientific (maybe missspelled) (mayby misspelled too)

Maybe the "24" was a miss-print too, then?.....

A distinct possibility.

A distinct certainty with the Suzuki figure.

Never mind. It must have been a nice day out.
