Is ETEC better than 4-stroke?
Evinrude E-TEC in fact, has cleaner exhaust emissions than a 4-stroke, it produces 5 to 10 times less Carbon Monoxide (CO) while idling or trolling.
Are E-TEC outboards any good?
Aside from the best power-to-weight ratios, pick-up speed and awesome fuel consumption, one of the E-Tec’s biggest selling points is its three-year no service period. Factor in the servicing costs you need to spend on another outboard for the first three years and you’ll come up with a substantial figure.
Why was Evinrude ETEC discontinued?
“Our outboard engines business has been greatly impacted by COVID-19, obliging us to discontinue production of our outboard motors immediately. This business segment had already been facing some challenges and the impact from the current context has forced our hand,” said José Boisjoli, President and CEO of BRP.
