Roughly how many Etec engines would you say you look after in total to produce that many failures? just wondering what the failure rate is.

The engine is a new 2010 motor

No problems so far, engines are now 1 year old and have done about 60 hrs.

Stephen you owe Pikey Dave a bit of a thumbs up as it was through him that I did not find the software that I don't have.

The early ones suffered problems that were in large electrical failures. However the new ones (post 2008) had this dealt with. THe main issue is poor or contaminated fuel causing corrosion.

You can do a certain amout of servicing on the injectors however this is to only clean out a filter.

454 hrs. No Problems

Bought 2005.

Just had it serviced last week by Keith at Powertech.

New bits: new plugs, new water impellor. Only because they were 5yrs old.

Thanks all. I'm not absolutely clear what arrangement is fitted to the boat in the way of a water separating fuel filter, but I assume something is as I asked for it. It'll probably only be filled up at the service station pump anyway so should not be a major problem but I'd rather prevent anything nasty getting anywhere near the injectors but it's nice to know there is a filter in there somewhere if needed.

Thumbs up to Mr Dave as the source of the software that nobody has

It seems that there are not too many major issues, which is good
