Responsible and routine maintenance aren’t just important for the life and longevity of your boat but also for the environment. Keeping your boat and engine in optimum operating condition means you’re helping it maintain maximum fuel efficiency. Maximum fuel efficiency translates directly into lower emissions from your boat’s engine, which in turn means a healthier, happier environment.
One excellent method for achieving optimum fuel efficiency is to use the proper equipment, such as the right propeller for your boat and engine. An adjustable-pitch propeller or a modular prop could help increase fuel efficiency. Ensure that your motor reaches the proper wide-open-throttle RPM with the right combination of motor and propeller and you could save yourself even more money at the gas pump. This can also help you to burn less boat motor oil, ultimately saving you money when boating.
