Absolutely correct. Runs fine in my truck. Won't have it in my boat. (Maybe the fact they give me a new truck every year is a factor.) My motor is 16 years old and still runs like a dream. 90 hp Merc, oil injected. With just me in in the boat and the seats down, it will hit 58-mph. That is just about 10-mph faster than I care go. I can fish three days on a tank of gas. I spend more than that on Vokky.
