Were running a 2004 Honda 150. Great engine and have had two of them. Not heard of any corrosion issues.

Ours is pulling 45 knots on a 7.0meter, has reasonable hole shot and burns less than 1.0 litre per mile at 30 knots and I am hopeful of better performance when its propped correctly as currently its over pitched.

Not bad for a thirsty, heavy lump.. My main issue is it is so big on the transom, makes it difficult to fit an aux !

Not my first choice of motor but it does the job !

I thought you had a 225, not a 150?

I couldn't comment on the 150, never tried one. I thought your comment was more about Hondas in general.

No, I was commenting on the 150s, as that was the question raised.

It would be wrong to make such a generalisation on the entire range.
