One thing to keep in mind is that any gas engine, two or for strokes gets bad fuel consumption. A small diesel engine is much better if gas availability becomes a problem. You won't go as fast, but it will get you there.
Yup, the MK 28 pictured above travelled about 700 miles or so in it's first
season of operation as a shuttle boat for guests and we used about 6
gallons of Diesel!! 9 knots wide open, but a little tank in terms of
redundancy and construction. I wish someone made a Diesel outboard!!

They do http://www.klaxondieseloutboards.com...ory/outboards/

Yamnar used to make them as well. Once in a while you'll see one for sale.

Thanks for the link. The weight and I would assume the cost would be
prohibitive to me. gas economy on an outboard comes down to throttle
setting and propeller pitch, as well as outboard trim. I have increased the
efficiency of my outboards by almost 30%. Thankfully I have 25 running motors
and 10 nonrunning for cannibalization.
