Honda has released a pair of new outboard motors based on the 1.5-liter engine found in the Fit. The BF90 and BF 75 are medium-sized 4-stroke stroke outboards rated at 90 and 75 horsepower, respectively. The new motors will first go on sale in Japan in November but were designed to exceed CARB emissions regulations for 2008. Honda says it is the first manufacturer to make its entire line of outboards CARB 2008 compatible.

Boat owners apparently are finding problems using 10 percent ethanol additive in gasoline.
