Texas Marine OUTBOARDS

In it for the long haul.

A two-stage direct-injection system uses a small charge of compressed air to finely atomize the diesel fuel as it injects it into the combustion chamber. Atomizing the fuel into a fine mist allows for ignition via spark to occur while delivering enhanced high rpm running quality. A glow plug works in concert with the spark plug for improved cold weather starting and idle quality.
