At MTU we've gained a reputation for build- ing quality marine die- sel engines. Yet, while maintaining the highest design and production standards, we've 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.
