new 2 stroke rules & regs

 

 

Who knows the genuine facts and truths about the 2 stroke bans on sales of 30 HP outboards ( 2 strokes ) 

 

I want a new 30 hp eTech fitted to my Stacer - what are the regs & rules ??

Not a ban on 2 strokes specifically

From 1 July 2018 importers/distributors were banned from importing high emission small engines.  They had 12 months to get rid of existing stock.  From 1 July 2019 it will be illegal to even sell these engines (as new).  Having said that I read a few days ago that this was going to be extended by 12 months.

The ban isn’t on 2 strokes, it’s on high emission engines.  Pretty much any carburretted 2 stroke won’t pass.  Direct injection two strokes like Etecs are fine.

Used still ok

In relation to your other question, it’s not about the boat, it’s about the motor.  You can still buy and sell used 2 strokes, but you won’t be able to buy a new non DI 2 stroke regardless of what it’s going on.
