Mercury Marine released a video from the recent Miami International Boat Show that shows off its new Verado engines on the water.

Two weeks ago in Miami, Mercury launched the Verado 350-hp outboard, the Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard, the Mercury Racing QC4v 1550 sterndrive and the Mercury 4.5-liter 200-hp sterndrive.

The Verado 350, which operates on 89 octane gas, with 91 octane recommended for full performance, provides as much as 10 percent greater fuel economy than competitive outboards, which translates to 100 miles or more in additional range per fill-up, the company said.
