    Default Yamaha F250 Motors

    How many out there are running them and how do you like them. Anyone have any issues running 87 octane?

    Just turned 100 hrs on mine and no issues yet.

    I've used a mix of 87 and 91 and noticed no difference or ill effects. Of course its only 100 hrs.... So i guess I'll see...

    I'm running twin F225's on my boat. I have 760hours on one and 450 on the other. I troll with the higher hour engine as well. I like them a lot, but there were a lot of factory (three as I remember) recalls at first. They wanted me to bring the boat to Juneau from Haines and I refused. They finally allowed the local Suzuki guy to make the corrections. Nothing major, but a pain none the less. The engines have been flawless other than that. I just pulled the plugs expecting to change them out, but they looked so good, I put them back in the engines.

    Thanks for the info guys. I am reading and hearing allot about no issues. Just wanted to make sure as 87 is about all we have at the docks. Thinking of maybe adding some octane boost a couple times a year. Really want the 2009 F250 for all the new electronic controls and stuff.

    Default single or twin?

    For your 27' GC? Twin, I assume?
