Mercury 60 EFI FourStroke Outboard
Weighing in at just 248 pounds, this is the lightest four-stroke electronic-fuel-injected outboard in its horsepower class and only 20 pounds heavier than its carbureted two-stroke counterpart. But it gets almost twice as many miles per gallon, has excellent acceleration, comes with a three-year warranty, and does not burn expensive outboard oil. The price is around $6,000 without controls.
