To be honest the clue is in the pricing of it.

Check Tiny Tach or Hardline Tachs, both hour/tach and with programmable firing sequence modes, could be used virtually on any engine type. Costs more, but that's money well spent. Nothing against the cheapo ones, but how accurate are they, that's the main question.

Happy Boating
