    The Evinrude 55MFE is based on the Evinrude E-TEC 864cc twin-cylinder, two-stroke powerhead. It uses the same type of direct-injection found on standard Evinrude E-TEC outboards, but significant changes are made to the combustion chamber design to convert this motor to multi-fuel capability. The motor will run on all types of jet fuel, kerosene, and gasoline, and even diesel fuel in a pinch, according to BRP. A switch electronically re-tunes the motor for each fuel type. Available only with rope starting, gas-assist manual trim, and a break-down tiller handle, the 250-pound 55MFE also has a wrap-around grab handle, tactical black paint and features that enable stealth operation, including minimal engine noise and exhaust emissions.

    The motor is also submersible and has a “de-watering” system that purges the powerhead and under-cowl area so the motor can be started after it has been submerged. Note that the this outboard is designed to fit through a 30-inch submarine tube.EJ
