MPI = Surefire Reliability
MerCruiser's 3.0L sterndrives feature a cutting-edge sequential multiport fuel injection (MPI) system, which precisely outlines the exact amount of fuel for all driving conditions. The advantages of MPI technology include easier startup regardless of external temperatures, smooth and stable idling, better throttle response, increased fuel efficiency and, over the long haul, reduced cost of operation.
MerCruiser's engineers take great care to integrate technology into its engines that can generate proven advantages in test after test. MerCruiser's 3.0L sterndrives gain from many such innovations, including Mercury's exclusive Engine Guardian, which senses potential problems and virtually eliminates the chance for engine or drive damage from overheating, low oil pressure or low drive lubricant. Another, Mercury's SmartCraft system, delivers information regarding critical engine functions, such as fuel usage and RPM, in an easy-to-read display at the helm.
Making Boating Enjoyable
You want the performance without the headaches. That's why Mercury is committed to developing innovative and sound technology that contributes to a more seamless boating experience. MerCruiser sterndrives feature Engine Guardian technology that monitors your engine's vitals to help protect your investment for the long run; power steering reduces the effort needed for steering while providing enhanced hull control at all speeds. Now, that's more like it.
Mercury's innovative joystick-control Axius system is the perfect remedy for boat maneuvering and docking woes. Axius allows you to dock in a safe and relaxed way, regardless of close quarters, cross currents or side winds. The intuitive and natural user interface gives you total boat control with one hand, meaning anybody can dock safely with total confidence.
SmartCraft: More Boating, Less Work
There has been one goal for the Mercury SmartCraft team from day one - to make boating more enjoyable through the use of boater-friendly technologies. SmartCraft technology enables engine components to gather and share information with each other and you, integrating this digital information to make monitoring your vessel, its engine and external conditions an easy, intuitive process. SmartCraft options such as DTS, MercMonitor, ECO-Screen and SmartTow help us accomplish our goal: maximizing the enjoyment you get on the water.
