run it dry

bumped into this in the merc 4 stroke faq's

I want to transport my FourStroke outboard in my truck after fishing. What is the recommended way to do this?

First, before removing the engine from the water, run the outboard out of fuel by disconnecting the fuel hose and letting the outboard run until it stops. Then, carefully remove the outboard from the boat and carefully lay it on its side, taking note of the position of the "This Side Up" decal on the side of the cowling. On tiller models 8 horsepower and above, it is possible to rotate the tiller handle down for additional space.

Looks like running the carb dry on a 4 stroke is ok by Mercury Marine...
