Technical Tidbits: Tug of War Behind-the-Scenes


By: Bill Grannis   Last October on LakeSheen in central Florida, an Evinrude E-TEC 150hp and the new Mercury 4-stroke 150hp battled it out in a drag race, a top-speed run, and with a tug-of-war to see which engine was best in class. Over a three day period bass boats and center-consoles rigged with 150hp outboards and driven by experienced… More

Tug of War: Behind The Scenes


Evinrude recently put to put their 150-hp engine to the test against a four-stroke 150-hp engine made by Mercury.  Along with a drag race and other performance tests, the two engines faced off in a tug of war to see which engine had more power and torque.   An independent boating expert made sure that there was a level playing… More

Experience More Torque


To compete with our two-stroke torque, four-stroke manufacturers are fighting to increase displacement and shed pounds to come close to Evinrude E-TEC’s efficiency.   The more refined, 2.6L Evinrude E-TEC 150-hp achieves up to 14% more torque with less displacement, than the 3.0L Mercury 150-hp four-stroke from 2,500 RPM to 5,500 RPM because with Evinrude E-TEC, every stroke is a… More

Experience More with Less Scheduled Maintenance


Run it as hard as you like right out of the box! All four-stroke outboards require a delicate and lengthy break-in period and 10-20 hour check.  With Evinrude E-TEC, there is no break-in period or 10-20 hour check.   Keep running it hard for 300 hours. Mercury and Yamaha four-stroke outboards require multiple dealer-scheduled maintenance visits, including oil and filter… More

Evinrude E-TEC 150HP Challenge


It’s an exciting day for the Evinrude community.  In the above video, you’ll find a video chronicling side-by-side tests pitting the Evinrude E-TEC 150HP engine against the Mercury 150HP engine.  In the independent tests, the Evinrude E-TEC 150HP engine outperformed its Mercury counterpart with superior power and torque.   Evinrude E-TEC has been outperforming 4 stroke engines for years, with… More
