Hope someone here can give me some info. I have a 1993 Evinrude 150 Ocean Pro and need some help as I know absolutely nothing about props. This motor came with 3 props. #1, the one that was on it is a 4 blade Stainless. I fish mostly rivers and don't care much for stainless. #2 is a 15X15 and #3 is a 15X17. I have no intrest in hole shots or high speed. I want to use the prop that will use less fuel. Which of the two would be better on fuel? The boat is a Stratos DC.
Thanks John

Can't help you on which will be better on fuel but a stainless prop with the right pitch is better than aluminum any day. The 4 blade will get you up plane quicker which in the long run will get better gas mileage as it is stugglling less to get up. I would stick with whats on it
