Why do some lakes outlaw 2 stroke engines?



  1. 0 Votes

    Carbureted and electronic-injection two-stroke engines that were made prior to 1999 have very high emission rates and can eject up to 30% of its fuel unburned into the water or our atmosphere, so that is why they are sometimes banned. Since then, direct injection two-stroke engines have been made and these will usually have a sticker indicating that it meets the Resources Board emission regulations that have been passed recently. These newer engines are allowed on all waterways.
