Fuel Efficient Outboards Helping the Fisherman
 By Sam Anderson

The "buzz" in boating these days are the new low-emission outboard
motors. Fueled by an EPA directive to reduce hydrocarbons by 2006, outboard makers have assigned their best engineers to develop new engine
technology to meet these requirements. Technologies selected include four-stroke outboards or direct injection two-stroke outboards. The term "new technology outboard" refers to the new direct injected 2-Strokes like Mercury Outboard Motors The Water Calls OptiMax™ models, and also 4-Stroke models.  These outboards have greatly reduced hydrocarbon emissions as well as improved fuel efficiency and operating characteristics.  OptiMax™ is another innovation from Lake X (R &D facility owned by Mercury). It's an engine with a unique direct fueling process that gives you more than just smooth running qualities and
reliable operation. It also gives you 10 percent better fuel economy than any other direct fuel injected marine engine in the world. This is very important especially with the soaring gas prices at the pump. Nowadays the more efficient you can become will save you money.  Also, the new direct injected 2-Strokes as well as 4-Strokes, achieve greater than 80% reductions in hydrocarbon emissions, compared with conventional 2-Strokes.  Larger 4-Strokes emit fewer hydrocarbons than most current Direct Injection 2-Strokes, but more nitrous oxides and carbon monoxide.  As a serious angler this allows me to fish longer and quieter and with a lot less hassle than conventional 2-Stroke engines that have a tendency to load up with gas and oil and cause smoky conditions.
Mercury OptiMax™ features technology that the competition isn't even
close to adopting. A high-pressure mixture of fuel and air creates an efficient plume of atomized fuel in the combustion chamber. And a multipoint lubrication system delivers precise amounts of oil exactly when and where you need it. Combined, they lead to a unique engine that runs more smoothly and efficiently than anything you've ever experienced before.
In tournaments, I constantly rely on my two Mercury motors, my 225 HP
OptiMax™ and a Mercury 9.9 HP four-stroke, to maneuver my boat. During
different situations, I may choose one motor over the other. Here's why:
calm conditions or conditions where I want to move my bait slow are two
areas where the Merc 9.9 horse motor shines. If I am working a break
where I need to move slowly while dragging a bait, my 9.9 horse kicker
fits the ticket. It is quiet and can change the boat's course easily when there is no wind trying to push the boat around. My Merc. 9.9 horse kicker would also be my choice if I want to back troll using the engine to move the boat in reverse. Back trolling can be very useful if you want to keep your bait in a precise spot. It's always more effective to pull a long object than to push it.
The efficiency of my main engine or my 225 OptiMax™ allows me the
freedom to fish where the "good" fish are biting.  In tournament situations you might have to run 12, 20, or 30 miles one way to get to the fish.  You need to have an efficient motor that will use less fuel and get you there in enough time to get on the good bite.  A perfect example of this was just recently while fishing in Pierre, SD on a reservoir. The best fishing was some 50-70 miles away from the weigh in station.  My OptiMax™ really gave me the confidence that I could get to the fish and back in plenty of time and still have a good supply of fuel
left over. When you are on the water this year you owe it to yourself to have the most efficient motor that you can run.  Not only do you owe it to yourself, but to the environment as well.  The bottom line on these new technologies is that they will save you money in the long term and preserve our precious environment for future generations to come.  Look into this "new technology" and ask questions about the whole line of Mercury Outboard Motors The Water Calls OptiMax™ and 4-Stroke engines.
