With all the nice 1.7L diesels in non American cars, should be easy to
design a nice diesel outboard. I think the large Honda is an automotive
engine, dry slumped and on end.

I just read about the Oxe. It uses a 2.0 GM diesel. According to the article is also costs twice what a 200hp Yamaha 4 stroke goes for. Ouch!

Diesels 'usually' last Ingersoll than a gas job and are much more economical on fuel. But what you save in fuel costs probably don't over ride the massive up front expense of the whole unit. Bad trade off IMO.

They said the main market was military and commercial, with some tenders for yachts where price was no issue but fuel compatibility was. It wouldn't make sense for pleasure boating.

How auto check thought that "Ingersoll " would be a good substitute for "longer" is beyond me...🙄

Increased range because of greater fuel economy is the most common
reason for justifying the higher cost. Diesels use almost 50% less
fuel for the same power output, and have higher low end torque.

GM's 2.0L diesel is made by Fiat.

Which also allows bigger, more efficient props running at lower RPM.


I was reading an article somewhere else that said the economy might
not make the difference in less than 10,000 hours. They also assume
higher maintenance cost, particularly with a belt drive. I am curious
how the belt is working out on the 7 Marine.
