4 Stroke Fuel Economy

Speed and economy don't normally come hand in hand, but this procedure offers a happy medium.

While 4-stroke technology in outboards has helped some for fuel economy, any avid boater or angler will tell you they still tend to be gas guzzlers.

This is especially true at the top end, where they might use up to three times the fuel, and the difference in time doesn't nearly make up for it.

The North American Fisherman crew set out to find a solution to this predicament and what we learned may just save you some money down the road, or water, as the case may be.
