Mercury Marine introduces three new EFI outboards

Mercury Marine has introduced three new outboard engines – the 8 and 9.9hp EFI FourStroke and 9.9hp EFI ProKicker outboard engines.

The new outboards feature an advanced Mercury electronic fuel injection system designed to provide boaters, fishing enthusiasts and pro anglers with easy starts and efficient performance.

“In recent years, Mercury Marine has pushed the envelope at the top of the outboard performance range with our 350-400 and 600hp Verado engines, but at the same time, we have focused on developing the next generation of outboards in our lower portable range,” explained John Buelow, Mercury Marine president.

“Redesigning the 8 and 9.9hp family to include EFI delivers a host of consumer benefits such as faster starting and better fuel economy, which builds on our commitment to continuous improvement and delivering high quality products.”

Horsepower range

Using EFI technology and other enhancements, the engines deliver up to 27% better fuel economy than earlier carbureted models in the same horsepower range.

The EFI technology makes the engines easier to maintain with no oil filter to change.

In addition, the maintenance-free camshaft requires no regular service and no valve lash adjustments for the life of the engine.

The new engines also come with a quick-connect fresh-water flush attachment that connects to a regular garden hose.

Both the 8 and 9.9hp EFI models are offered with a choice of manual or electric start; the manual-start models do not require a cranking battery.

The 9.9hp EFI is available with remote or tiller controls, manual or power trim. The 8hp EFI has tiller control.

The Mercury 9.9hp EFI ProKicker has been designed with a pro angler in mind and also comes with Mercury’s heavy-duty Command Thrust gearcase and standard power tilt.
