Trolled all day. One nice Coho in the boat. I think my 135HO runs on fumes 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.
Your 135 HO at low speeds and idle uses less fuel than the 2-stroke Yamaha 90 HP 3-cylinder.
