Fuel Hikes Smiles

The recent surge in fuel prices is a result of a blend of global market fluctuations and domestic factors. This has a significant impact on the daily lives of South Africans, from the cost of groceries to commuting to work, and even recreational boating.

Recent research conducted by data and analytics group, Lightstone, has found that South Africans are traveling shorter distances each month but are visiting petrol stations more frequently. This is indicated by a 7% decrease in the distance traveled and a 2% increase in service station traffic. It suggests that people are refueling their vehicles/boats with less fuel per visit instead of filling their tanks to the brim. 

While Suzuki owners enjoy the benefit of lean burn technology, it is important to understand what an incredible impact this revolutionary technology has and how it saves you money daily! 

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Lean Burn technology optimizes the air-fuel mixture, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. This means you can enjoy longer outings on the water without constantly worrying about refueling.

Extended Range

With better fuel efficiency, recreational boaters can extend their range on the water, exploring farther without the need for frequent refueling stops.

Reduced Emissions

Lean Burn technology helps to reduce harmful emissions, making Suzuki outboard engines more environmentally friendly. This is essential for preserving marine ecosystems and complying with environmental regulations.

Smooth Operation

By optimizing the combustion process, Lean Burn technology ensures smoother engine operation at various speeds. This enhances the overall boating experience, providing a more comfortable ride for recreational boaters.

Enhanced Performance

Despite focusing on fuel efficiency, Lean Burn technology also enhances the engine's performance. It helps to deliver more torque and power when needed, ensuring reliable performance for various boating activities such as cruising, fishing, or watersports.

Overall, Suzuki Outboards' Lean Burn technology offers recreational boaters a combination of improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, smoother operation, and enhanced performance, ultimately enhancing the enjoyment of time spent on the water.
