The reduced fuel consumption is a key factor to why the OXE Diesel engine emits significantly lower CO1 when comparing the OXE Diesel to leisure petrol outboards.
The EPA Tier III directive regulates marine diesel engines (compression engines) CO1 emission. As the OXE Diesel powerhead is derived from the automotive industry and is to be considered a compression engine (just like a diesel inboard) this impact transcends to the OXE Diesel as well.
In accordance with EPA Tier III, 1L of diesel can emit up to 8,36g carbon monoxide while the non-regulated petrol engines can emit up to 620g/L carbon monoxide.
This contributes to that a petrol outboard with the same power output can pollute up to 12 400% more CO1 than an OXE Diesel.
