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

Assuming you only used the fuel from the Kerny Kans that's about 320l/15=21:1 oil ratio, that can't be right. I get about 75:1 using XD100 on the XD100 setting. I used to get around 50:1 on TCW3 setting. Hard acceleration uses more oil, have you got a lead hand?

That pic wasn't necessarily one from that day - just one I found on my phone. And often we refuel half way through the day.

Blimey, I haven't used much more than 15L of oil in two and a half years and that's running on the TCW3 setting!

I have the 150 which is a detuned version of the 200 engine, same block, love it to bits.

200 small block I think is not the best , or at least have no more power to show comparing to 150 or 175.

great idea
great acceleration
Naff warranty
varied reliability problems

a bit like marmite. you either love them or hate them. oh and lets remember Alpha Romeo's sold well even though they fell apart so why not an outboard?

look at the max hours! its taking the P**S when you consider other makes and even more of a joke when compared to a Honda.

great when new but terrible buy 2nd hand and people are getting to know this and the fact that it must be set up by dealer makes it even worse.

750 hours or 5 years, I know which most people would get to first, adding more hours would be pointless. The majority of recreational users will never get near that, I wish
