Assuming you only used the fuel from the Kerny Kans that's about 320l/15=21:1 oil ratio, that can't be right. I get about 75:1 using XD100 on the XD100 setting. I used to get around 50:1 on TCW3 setting. Hard acceleration uses more oil, have you got a lead hand?

That pic wasn't necessarily one from that day - just one I found on my phone. And often we refuel half way through the day.

I have a 175 etec and love it. It sounds amazing under load!

Blimey, I haven't used much more than 15L of oil in two and a half years and that's running on the TCW3 setting!

I have the 150 which is a detuned version of the 200 engine, same block, love it to bits.

200 small block I think is not the best , or at least have no more power to show comparing to 150 or 175.

great idea
great acceleration
Naff warranty
varied reliability problems

a bit like marmite. you either love them or hate them. oh and lets remember Alpha Romeo's sold well even though they fell apart so why not an outboard?

look at the max hours! its taking the P**S when you consider other makes and even more of a joke when compared to a Honda.

great when new but terrible buy 2nd hand and people are getting to know this and the fact that it must be set up by dealer makes it even worse.

750 hours or 5 years, I know which most people would get to first, adding more hours would be pointless. The majority of recreational users will never get near that, I wish
