115 e tech

My 115e tech has been a great motor, and very ecconomical to operate. As of now I have abt 160 hrs on it and was wondering how many hrs I can reasonably expect to get out of it ? I take care of it and have all work and service done by an evinrude specialist.

    I have serviced 115's with over 3000 hours on them. Neglect and lack of use shortens the life of any motor.

    Thank you. One more queation, Does it hurt an outboard to run at high rpm, I've heard does not ? I usually run right around 4000 rpm if i'm going any distance, would it do harm to run 45 or 4600, or am I better off going easy ?

    The rpms for a 2 stroke really do not make much of a difference in recreational use. Most boats with sufficient power will cruise between 3500-4500 rpm.
