2.5hp Propane Powered Outboard, Short Shaft
15 Inch Shaft
|Warranty Details||Three Years|
The first propane-powered outboard engines, LEHR 2.5hp motors present an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective alternative to gasoline.
Overhead-valve four-stroke engines run on 110-octane propane, and are eco-friendly with zero evaporative emissions, because propane, unlike gasoline, is not listed as a marine pollutant by the DOT. Propane is 50-times cleaner than gas, with 96% less carcinogenic compounds, 60-70% less smog-producing hydrocarbons and no Class I or II ozone-depleting chemicals. It’s also domestically produced, reducing our dependency on foreign oil.
LEHR outboards are easy starting with no choke and no priming, reliable with no carburetor gum-up or winterizing, economical because propane costs roughly half as much as gas. Convenient Twist ’n Go fueling on 2.5hp model. Simply twist in a standard 16.4oz. propane canister and start your engine—no messy mixing or gasoline storage required. Or connect to a standard LPG tank with the provided 4' hose assembly for longer run times. Includes 4' propane fuel hose for remote tank.
