    Default Rotax 912 iS Issues?

    Anyone know of problems with Rotax's new fuel-injected iS engine? I
    heard that the new engines are not yet flying.

    The old saying was "if you have to ask, you can't afford it".
    So I know I can't.

    electronic fuel injection. We may finally catch where the auto world
