Evinrude E-TEC uses several new technologies. The most obvious, when looking at an Evinrude E-TEC outboard, is the fuel injector. It is not a solenoid type injector, like the Evinrude DI models Bombardier began producing for the 2002 model year. This injector design requires less operating current to activate, meaning we are able to use smaller electronics which operate at cooler temperatures. Cooler running electronics equates to durability. The injector has fewer parts and requires fewer tight tolerances, which lowers manufacturing costs.
