At MTU we've gained a reputation for build- ing quality marine die- sel engines. Yet, while maintaining the highest design and production standards, weve solved a lot of the prob- lems related to fuel efficiency.

Through utilization of the latest engineering advances, MTU has developed a highly efficient, low fuel consuming diesel engine.

Because of high fuel prices,

European technology his- torically has demanded an engine that would deliver the fuel efficiency problem: MTU has the sumes less fuel than any comparable en- gine—as much as 10% less. Over an engine's lifetime, the savings are tremendous.

These savings, together with

MTU's complete power package availability, ease of engine main- tenance, complete service/parts back-up and service, and service parts exchange program, has solved a number of marine propulsion problems.

Decades of testing and technology have resulted optimum performance while consuming in this progress and because of our ex- a relatively small amount of fuel. Our perience and expertise, we can satisfy 4-cycle engine, by its very nature, con- your marine propulsion needs. mlu Motoren- und Turbinen-Union For more information on mtu engines, write or call: Friedrichshafen GmbH MTU of North America, Inc.
