The new Mercury 5hp Propane /LPG FourStroke delivers no-hassle portability, reliability and convenience running on alternative clean-burning fuel – whether it’s powering aluminum boats, inflatables or sailboats.
With a large 123cc displacement, the new 5hp FourStroke Propane outboard offers best-in-class power by delivering a true 5hp. Starting at just 27.2 kilograms the 5hp Propane
FourStroke is light and easy to carry or transport. And you can run it on the same conventional propane you’re probably using in your backyard grill. It’s also friendly to the environment with 30% lower exhaust emissions compared to gasoline.
With a safety-first approach, the outboard comes standard with a propane auto shut-off valve on the engine and in the fuel hose connector. Starting is made easy with the manual choke, which enriches the fuel-to-air ratio for fast and reliable starts, particularly when the engine is cold. Auto decompression reduces the pull force when using the starter rope.
The 5hp Propane FourStroke sports an easy-to-reach shift lever on the engine and has six tilt positions with a shallow-water drive to set the out board where you need it.
