When I started to look for some new outboard motors that I could potentially use with the boat that I bought, I was eager to find one that would be much cleaner and create less emissions than other motors that I had in the past. I hated going out on a lake or on the bay and seeing the trail of smoke being pumped out behind my boat all of the time.
I finally was able to find a motor that ran efficiently and fairly cleanly compared to other motors. I was able to get this motor for my boat and start using it right away because it was a used motor that was all ready to go. I have continued to only use Mercury Optimax oil in this motor since this is part of why the motor is able to run so cleanly compared to other motors.
