Yam 115HP 2-stroke

I think I'm about to buy a RIB with a 1999 Yamaha 115HP 2-stroke outboard. We'll only be using the boat for summer fun, but is there anything (unpleasant) I need to know about these engines?

Thanks

I had one from new and regret ever letting it go as they are a great engine, but they do love fuel-having said that they all do

I'm used to poor petrol consumption as I also drive a Caterham 7. I see the RIB as the boating equivalent
