If Yamaha motors have ever gotten bad press, I haven't seen it.

I've run Yamaha 150s on last two boats, experience could not be better.

Are you running Yamalube or ETEC oil? Seems to me it smelled more if I used cheaper oil.

As I understand the CARB ratings, a 1 star has 75% less emissions than a standard two stroke, and a 2 star has 20% less than 1star, and 3 star 65% less than 1 star.

So your HPDI isn't exactly an...

I had a Yamaha 150 VMAX HPDI on last boat and have a Yamaha F150 on current.

Keep that VMAX until it dies.

VMAXes are not smokey or smelly, they are 2 star CARB emissions.

I think F150s are...

I see you're not a gamer OP and have a desktop.

Hmmm. Guess I'll contact Yamaha, and perhaps downsize boats if they concur on need for WOT driving.

I'd feel like a goof driving around this little lake at 50mph. 😕

Opinion on annual oil change

I moved to a lake that is under 80 acres. While I use the boat to fish a couple times a week, I'm only driving it a few blocks at most and around 5mph.

Any opinions on dropping the annual oil and...
