Why I love my 4-Stroke.

Just filled up my tank after 2 days on Erie and 2 trips to Yough Dam.  It used a whopping 11 gallons.  I love my Honda!

    Trolled erie for 5 hrs one day and fished Mosquito lake all the way up to the bouy line and drift fished east to west 5 times and trolled back to the ramp. I have a honda 50 hp 4 stroke. I used a whopping total of 2 1/2 gallons of gas. From full tank to full tank. And you think you love your honda.

    I wanted a Honda but settled for a Mercury bigfoot 9.9. Just picked it up at 4:00 yesterday and had it out on Arthur for three hours. Hope I do as good. I was wondering if I needed to get a spare tank as it is a 6 gallon tank but I think you have answered that question.  Not the fastest on an 18' pontoon but sure is quieter than the two stroke OMC I had on the last one.

    You should be fine with the 6 gal tank.  My Honda 20 came with a 3 gal and I've never used more than 6 gallons in a day with my 135.

    You are right- I love this four stroke!
    Hard to tell when it is started with my hearing aids.
