New Propane Outboards Are A 'Green' Option

Tools

Motorboat engines are now available that have lower emissions and are cheaper to run than conventional models.

Dave White from the New York Sea Grant talks about new propane-powered outboards. Click on the picture for his interview on 7 News This Morning.

There are 2.5 and 5 horsepower engines that use 16-ounce propane canisters, plus 9.9 and 15 horsepower engines that hook up to regular size propane tanks.

There is no risk of gasoline spills, a 97 percent reduction in emissions, and the fuel is about half the cost of gasoline.
