My Tohatsu 6hp has been great and is running strong for nearly 2 years without any issues. The fuel economy is awesome. She starts first or second pull every time. I too was surprised by the reviews on power as it is plenty adequate for me. I have it on an inflatable rated for 7hp and it does just fine. There is some vibration but it isn't any more than other single cylinder outboards I've owned over the years. It is a fourstroker so it is a bit quieter than twostrokers in the past. I'm planning on buying a larger outboard for a jon boat that I have and I will likely get another Tohatsu. They make the engines for nearly everyone else anyway so why pay more for a brand label? The price I paid online for a brand new MFS6C could not be beat!
