Surely flushing an outboard with hosepipe & muffs will use a lot less water than filling a dustbin from my outside tap & flushing the outboard in this???
My water is from a spring but I still had the moaning neighbour whinging at me using the hose to flush my engine in March!!
I am moving in May which will be on mains water unfortunately.
As there are conflicting reports on on this thread about flushing with a hose pipe.A name in a department saying its ok would be good in case of grief.
