    2-Stroke Technology Much Cleaner

    Just saw a show on OLN and they were talking about a new 2-stroke engine technology which is much more cleaner (up to 88%) than 4-strokes. They did comparisons on a boat using a 2-stroke (cant remember the brand), Yamaha and Mercury 4-stroke engine, and the 2-stroke was way more powerfull and more efficient than the 4-stroke Mercury and Yamaha engine.

    I can't remember what the engine manufacturer was, but it is currently being advertised as much cleaner and powerfull, and will be sold in 2007. Its not the 2-strokes, its the emissions.

    I knew they could do it...I just knew it. I wish Yamaha would pick up the baton now and bring back the 2 stroke.

    The Donkeys have the tech, what will they do with it though?

    Sweep it under the rug since they already have a high HP 4 stroke program.
