Jr. and I took the week off and planned to do some fishing. We were out Monday trolling for 5 hrs. This engine continues to perform flawlessly, turnkey and go! I've been experimenting with fuel grades and have concluded that premium works best, it seems to idle just a tad bit smoother than regular fuel. I "think" I gained just a little top end with it too, it's hard to tell. Top speed with this engine is slower than the others I have but is the the sweet one of the fleet.

Thanks! Yes for a big engine it's pretty nice that it will run out around 26 mph and troll all day at 1.5 mph.
