    Anyone own a suzuki 4 stroke? I am getting ready to buy and the dealers are telling me how greatly improved the suzuki is in fuel consumption. My buddy has a suzuki 2 stroke that is the worst on fuel consumption. For a grand more I can opt up to a Yamaha but, if the suzuki's have made leaps and bounds in their outboards I may just go with them and save a grand.

    I can find where they compare all 2 strokes and suzuki is the worst but that test is 4 years old and it's on 2 strokes not 4 strokes.

    Any feedback?

    Thanks.

    Go for the Suzuki you wont regret it. I have a Yamaha and have not had any trouble with it, but my buddy has a Suzuki and it is smother and quieter.

    I appreciate the replies - so I take it the Suzuki's have gotten better on eating fuel. Glad to know and glad I asked. Thanks again - may have saved me a grand fellas.

    Anyone out there with any negative feedback?

    It sounds like everyone who posted is happy with their outboard, no matter what the manufacturer and if they know someone who has a Suzuki, they are happy with it as well.

    Thanks for all the feedback on the Suzuki. I think I'll just press on with Suzuki.
