Uses expensive oil. Makes a nice noise. I like them. If using for heavy duty applications get a 200HO which is the big block version.

The oil is expensive but not if you buy it by the case from Ribstuff. The engines don't use a lot of it. Make sure you keep the fuel free of water.

Like most Outboards you'll have you're Fans and Detractors...(As well as Horror storys on all makes!) I had a e-tec 130 and realy liked it..I now have A Suzi 4sk and I love that too!
I think engine Hours and Serviceing/Maintainance/Condition are the Prime Drivers in the Choice of Used a Modern Outboard..
.Unless of course you are buying new..when things like type of use, Back-up localy,Warranty, not least Price, ect come into play and of course Personal experiance (Always a good idea to try a few engines if you have the chance!) and therefor Preference.
x2 for the Big Block.

Depends how much you use them! On a long day last year working on a commercial RIB with 2x200HO I put in about 15 litres of oil at the end of the day
