skip the diesel...you can buy an extra gas engine to replace yours when it dies for the extra cost of the diesel.
the 100 series is a good commercial unit, but the 200 series is a lot bigger...thicker...and better built. there are a lot of differences between the 200's and 100's besides just the tranny. sit on them both...100's are enough for some guys...i wanted 200.
the EFI's are pricey but they do save you some on gas. that being said i love my kawi 23hp on my 252...burns about a gallon an hour.
between the 252 with a 29hp kohler vs a 152 with a 23hp kohler and for only a grand more you can get the 252 with 6 more hp?...no brainer for me....spend the extra grand.
