Think of the Evinrude E115 as a souped up 90. The short stroke motor likes to rev and makes a formidable growl for a motor that weighs in at only 349 lbs. It’s the little engine that could in terms of how fast it can accelerate, but when it comes to top speeds, it cannot compete on the same level as the big guys like the Mercury 115.
What it lacks in speed, the Evinrude E115 makes up for in clean-running. It uses a DFI system that atomizes fuel under pressure and injects it directly into each cylinder. This means there is no visible smoke and no plug fouling. Just make sure to keep it that clean with Evinrude XD100 oil.
