My Honda 2 is also air cooled and I agree....it's a bit noisy, even compared to my Merc 2-stroke 15HP. But it's so efficient, it runs for more than an hour on a quart of gasoline. My 2 gallon can gets me 4+ hrs of running time!

I love this little motor. Lightweight, reliable, simple to maintain, efficient and cheap! What more could you ask out of a 2HP motor?
Well caltexflanc would like it to be made by Mercury...
