Just purchased a 2004.. brand new.. never used mercury saltwater series motor.. 200hp and fuel injected.. i have it on a 22ft Parker SE.. was wondering if anyone could tell me more about the motor.. maybe fuel milage? problems
I have said engine on my 24' wellcraft. I get 2.5 miles per gallon at cruise, which is about 28 miles an hour, loaded with 3/4 tank of fuel (75 gal) & 700lbs of people on board. Fires right up & idles all day at 800 rpm.
Change the impeller every season if you lay up in the winter, every other season if you run all the time. Oh, & don't forget to fill the oil tank That alarm will scare the 6ell outta ya when you are 30 miles off shore!
