So I’m not one who knows anything about outboards. I have a 2012 25hp evinrude etec. I had it out yesterday and ran it about for about 4 1/2 hours. Ran great and had no problems with it. When I was loading the boat, I noticed at idle what looked to be either white smoke or steam coming out of the exhaust. I bought the motor used from a guy on Facebook. I’m not sure if these etecs are supposed to smoke/steam a bit or not. It seemed when I throttled it to get it on the trailer, the smoke/steam stopped. I did not smell anything coming from the exhaust and it seemed to disappear pretty quickly which makes me think it may have been steam. Just seems weird because water was about 85 degrees and temp outside was probably close to 85 when we were loading up. Any advice would be appreciate. -Mike

My 30hp steams occasionally (normal), no rhyme or reason. Just make sure it's peeing out the back.
