2019 Tohatsu MFS5CLPGS





Thanks to Tohatsu's 5hp Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) outboard, sailors are no longer forced to carry gasoline on board. The 5hp LPG comes equipped with a fuel line that will connect to any standard North American propane tank. Our innovative LPG outboard will run for a full 5 hours at WOT on a single 11lb propane tank, without sacrificing performance.

Exclusive to Tohatsu's LPG outboard is the Safety Fuel Shut Off Valve which keeps propane fuel from continuously running when engine is not in use. Plus, since the 5hp LPG does not require ethanol or gas, this propane outboard requires almost zero maintenance on fuel related components. We offer a 20" and 25" shaft Sail Pro model which includes a 12V 60W 5A charging system and high thrust prop. What sailor doesn't want a virtually maintenance free engine that has their back?
