If the 14 DFI demo price feels good to you I'd give it a try. 50 hrs on a machine is nothing when these things have a 3k hour life span. If you only put 50 hrs a season it will last a lifetime. Besides, in spite of what everyone says I want to believe there has to be some fuel savings somewhere in a season with the DFI.
Fuel Injection by it's nature is more efficient than a carburetor.

Good luck!

It does seem like DFI should do better on gas, but I have yet to read a single post by anyone here who tried to accurately check theirs, that said they were doing better than the gas counterpart to their DFI.

What the DFI mostly does, is give instant starts and much faster load/torque response than a carbed engine of the same model.
