Gotta love the fuel consumption...

[ Edited ]

Trolled all day.  One nice Coho in the boat.  I think my 135HO runs on fumes  Smiley Happy  So far, super impressed with all aspects of this motor.

 

Nothing scientific about this statement, but in comparing hours on the water, my friends old Yamaha 90 seems to use way more fuel.

At troll speed it sips fuel. Make sure after trolling to run it hard for a bit to keep it clear. IMO.

Your 135 HO at low speeds and idle uses less fuel than the 2-stroke Yamaha 90 HP 3-cylinder.
