Evinrude etec. Is this a good motor?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at buying a used boat with a 2005 75hp Etec. Is there anything I should be concerned with? I've heard stories of power heads blowing. Is this a good, reliable motor?

I own a 2011 90hp. When I bought it I asked about problem history and learned that there was some issues with fuel pumps or fuel delivery in the early models but the problem(s) have been addressed. Something about the injector pumps not built to Evinrude specifications by the manufacturer. Naturally, Evinrude found a new manufacturer for their fuel pump.

Mine has been working great. Love the auto-winterizing feature and startup is unbelievable! After parking it all winter, I connected the water line and when I turned the key I would have sworn it was running before I heard the starter engage.

My 90hp E-tec is quiet but not quite to the level of 4-strokes although at high speed it is quieter than comparable 4-strokes.

My 90hp E-tec is economical. At trolling speed it is actually more fuel efficient than a 4-stroke but otherwise it can compete with them.

My 90hp E-tec sips engine oil at 100:1 ratio so for every 100 gallons of gasoline I use 1 gallon of 2-cycle oil. I would highly recommend using approved motor oil to make sure you get a long life out of your E-tec.

Bottom line? I am very satisfied with my E-tec so far.

I ran a 110 etec on a pontoon for 7 years and never had a lick of a problem. Pulled tubers, skied with it, putted around the lake, trolled and fished with it. I have no problems at all with it, quiet, dependable what more could a person ask for.

The e-tecs are great. Some of the Fichts were the problem ones. You have nothing to worry about.
